  • Curiosity Didn’t Kill the Coach
    "Curiouser and curiouser!’ cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English); `now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was!" - Lewis Carrol, Alice in Wonderland.

  • Learning from Learners' Learning
    We expect our players to seek out new challenges and be on a continual learning journey. But what about us coaches? Do we approach our own learning in the same way, and what can we learn from our players' learning to help our ongoing development?

  • Are You Playing Tug of War?
    A great working environment is an essential pre requisite for me and I’d rather not coach than walk into the gym each day and shout at athletes as a form of motivation. ‘Constant dropping wears away stone’ and a barrage of negative comments towards an athlete not only affects self esteem, but begins to motivate athletes through fear of failure...

    Over the course of Valentine's Day and the week following, you will see posts on Twitter from the sports coach UK Coach Education team ( @SCUKCoachEd #LoveLearning ) around why coaches love learning, and the impact it has on their coaching and development.

  • Help your athletes talk their way out of trouble: A single-minded approach to fighting mental illness
    Times may be changing, but there is still a social stigma attached to mental health issues.

  • Inside story: The value of self-awareness as a tool for improvement

    With the Welsh Bowl in the books we now take time to look back over the series so far and to reflect on how we felt the various things we put into place played out and helped to prepare the team for the game.

  • The TRUTH behind Mental Health & Performance in Sport
    When we hear about mental health these days, we often think about performers with poor psychological functioning and behaviours, which are troublesome or destructive to self and others. In this article I’d like to suggest an entirely different perspective on mental health.
