Coaching Week 2019

Thank you for your support

During 03 -09 June 2019, clubs, coaches, community groups, education, businesses and the public showcased and explored how coaches can play a role in building healthier, happier communities. 

Coaching is about PEOPLE. If you're helping people to get active, you're part of the coaching family. Coaching Week served as a springboard for inspiring the public and policymakers to value and invest in the amazing work you do and to empower you to grow your PEOPLE skills. 

Make Your Pledge

Don't worry, Coaching Week may have come to an end but you can still make your pledge. We're inviting everyone to make a pledge. It only takes a few seconds.

If we all make a #GreatCoachingPledge, no matter how small, to develop or support #greatcoaching, collectively, we’ll make a difference and show the nation why it makes sense to invest in coaches. 

Act now

In an increasingly digital world, where sedentary lifestyles and loneliness are on the rise, the need to get people moving and connected has never been greater. Coaching is a great solution to this modern-day problem.
