Taking place from 3-9 June 2019, Coaching Week is a celebration of great coaching which takes place across the UK, raising awareness of the amazing benefits of coaching.
The week provides an annual platform to empower athletes and coaches to celebrate their community.
The week also aims to highlight the broader benefits of coaching and the fact that great coaching can inspire others and make a difference to people’s mental and physical well-being, as well as contribute to individual, economic and social development.
Over nine million adults in the UK received coaching over the past 12 months with a broad range of benefits delivered to recipients.
A broader definition of coaching now exists to recognise the wider benefits it has on society, as well as incorporating the traditional coaching of teaching sport specific-skills and knowledge.
To mark Coaching Week, UK Coaching wants people across the nation to share when and where they have experienced great coaching. People can identify examples of great coaching through UK Coaching’s Principles of Great Coaching.
