Overview

Are you motivated to offer the very best support to your athletes?

Are you committed to developing your skills as a coach?

They’ll begin by visiting the fundamentals of your role as a coach, they’ll explore three well known coaching styles and finally, discuss how communication, team culture and the coaching environment itself are key factors when optimising the impact of your programme.

The team will blend known theoretical principles with insights from over 20 years of working with novice athletes through to Olympic champions.
