Performance Special Report
Coach education and development: a state of play across elite sport
Welcome to the latest Leaders Performance Institute Performance Special Report, the series in which we aim to collate best practice insights from across the world of elite sport.
We asked our members what you wanted and one topic was mentioned above most: the significant matter of coaching the coaches.
While the athlete remains at the centre of the performance equation, we know that skilled coaches play a crucial role in enabling athletes to reach their potential. It behoves sports organisations to be more systematic in developing and supporting its coaching workforce.
With this in mind we have assembled our elite performance panel of coach educators and developers from across the world of sport. None will tell you that they have cracked it entirely but they have taken significant steps and may just provide you with a nugget or two for your next project.
