The vision of the UK Coaching Framework is to create a world class coaching system by 2016, with the aim to create a cohesive, ethical, inclusive and valued coaching system where skilled coaches can support children, players and athletes at all stages of their development in sport.
To achieve this vision, West Yorkshire Sport has brought together local, regional and national partners to develop and manage a local Coaching Network.
Quite simply this is intended to provide support to coaches, irrespective of what level that they are at or who they coach. The aim is to support the 'Right Coach', to be in the 'Right Place' at the 'Right time', and adopt a coach centred approach to developing coaching as a profession which is properly recognised, supported and rewarded.
Key areas of work for the Coaching Network will include:
Similar networks are being developed in each County Sport Partnerships to support National Governing Body activity around coaching and coaches operating locally.
A key principal of the networks is that activity will be 'needs led' with these being identified and jointly agreed with NGBs - based on their sport's coach and participant pathways, their whole sport plan, and locally identified priorities.
How will this benefit coaches?
How will this help organisations that deliver sport in West Yorkshire?
