UK Athletics are supporting UK Coaching week, which takes place from 7-13th June 2021. This is an opportunity for athletes, coaches, organisations and the public to celebrate great coaching and encourage coaches to adapt and recover their space within the athletic sector. Each day we will be showcasing coaches and leaders who have demonstrated resilience, creativity and how coaching or leading is more than just training individuals.
“Coaches and coaching are very much the heartbeat of our sport. Rightly so, we always talk about putting the athlete(s) first, however, it is those people behind the athlete that make this great sport happen. Coaches are vital to increasing participation, retaining athletes and developing athletes as well rounded ‘people’. It is important that we (NGBs) support coaches, recognise the hugely important role they play in our sport, celebrate and promote great coaching at every stage of the athlete pathway.
I personally, would like to say thank you to each and every one of you. “
Mark Munro – Development Director, UKA
