About ConnectedCoaches

You can’t get away with Coach Talk 24/7 with family and friends but you can come to ConnectedCoaches to discuss whatever’s on your mind – a challenging parent, someone who turns up late, engaging those who seem disinterested etc - whenever you like.

We are driven by the belief that anyone coaching any form of physical activity make local communities better places.


Yet coaches can feel cut-off, out on a limb. Entirely understandable when many of you work single handedly – as tireless volunteers – not only to coach, but also to talk to parents, motivate people to come along and find funding.

We work with members to make ConnectedCoaches:

Friendly, welcoming online community

friendly and welcoming

About us

ConnectedCoaches is a initiative by the team at UK COACHING (FORMERLY SPORTS COACH uk): a charity established in 1984 to drive the development of sports coaching in the UK. The initiative has been funded by UK COACHING, its subsidiary Coachwise and the Tim Lewis Trust Fund.


We believe that when coaches feel supported they grow in confidence. In turn, they challenge themselves to be better and achieve amazing things.
