Coaching Children

All too often programmes offered to children in sport are scaled down versions of adult activity without regard for the different needs of children. Children want different things from their sport participation and require different approaches given their stage of development both physically and mentally.

The Coaching Children Programmes aims to equip coaches with specific knowledge, skills and competencies to cater for the needs of children.

Creating good coaching children practices at an early stage will result in a higher proportion of children gaining both movement skills and love of activity that we hope will remain with them in to their teenage and adult years.
