UK COE of coaching

UK Olympic and Legacy Hopes Boosted by Coaching Centres@UK Sport

An initial focus will be the nurturing and support of Talent Development Coaches, who are capable of working with talented young performers, (including potential stars of the London games). With their unique position, Coaching Centres will also be best placed to target the coaching needs of young people, adults and high performance athletes.

A UK Centre of Coaching Excellence in sport and disability sport will also be established. The Centre will include a UK-wide consortium of key agencies and individuals with proven track records in coaching and coach education. It will act as a focal point for the education and development of sports coaches to the highest level.
