UK Coaching Week 2020

14/09/2020 00:00, In Blog / Club Notice Board /

UK Coaching Week 2020 will take place from the 14-20 September.

The awareness campaign – which empowers athletes, coaches and the public to celebrate great coaching – will centre on the need to ‘Support Your Coach’, kicking off with the #GreatCoachingPledge that will call on the nation to give some of their own time, sharing thanks and support for the coaching community.


Coaches have been absolute heroes keeping us active, connected and motivated both before the coronavirus pandemic and during the period of isolation and disruption caused by the lockdown.

As restrictions are eased and more of us return to the sport, we will turn to coaches to integrate new controls to keep us all safe, so let’s ensure that we recognise and support our coaches across the UK for the vital work that they do.

How Can I Get Involved?

The #GreatCoachingPledge

 Everyone can get involved in the #GreatCoachingPledge – from parents, athletes,  to clubs, charities and businesses – to recognise and support the people who provide great coaching to their communities.

Post your pledge from the 14 September.
