Excellent Coaching Practice

The Excellent Coaching Practice research was completed to determine what athletes' and coaches' perceptions of excellent practice was. We also gained an insight in to how coaches learn and develop through the interviews.

The Excellent Coaching Practice research findings has been split in to seven categories being: Environment Specific, Common Features, Children, Youth, Adult, Talent Development and High Perfomance. Each coaching environment is presented separately and can be downloaded here. The commonalities and differences are also detailed.  A number of themes emerged from the data, however, not all themes were discussed by coaches in all environments. The main themes were: knowledge, development experiences, approach to self-development, working environment and desired opportunities.
