scottishathletics are delighted to be supporting National Coaching Week from 3-9 June by showcasing great coaching stories about the many coaches who volunteer their time to do great work in support of individuals and communities across the country.
The theme of this year’s initiative, led by UK Coaching, is healthy and happier communities.
Up until Tuesday 28 May 2019, UK Athletics along with scottishathletics, Athletics Northern Ireland, England Athletics and Welsh Athletics, will be inviting nominations from across the sport.
This will culminate in a showcase of these stories on our websites and social media channels throughout the week commencing 3 June 2019.
The main outcomes of the week include showcasing and exploring how inspiring coaches help to build active and socially cohesive communities, galvanising the public to value coaching and policymakers to invest in developing coaches, as well as inspiring coaches to develop their skills.
Coaches across the country volunteer their time, providing valuable support to athletes regardless of ability, age or event. This week-long celebration of coaching is a perfect opportunity to highlight those who are making a real difference at clubs or in the community.
The nomination period begins today (Friday 10 May 2019) and closes on Tuesday 28 May 2019. To make the process as inclusive as possible, there is the opportunity for you to nominate a coach, or for a coach to self-nominate.
The key to your nomination is to connect it to the theme of this year’s ‘Coaching Week’, which is how this coach contributes to a healthy and happier community.
