Netballers say 'thanks coach' as UK Coaching Week begins

UK Coaching Week is here (29 April to 5 May) and England Netball, as an official partner, is asking netballers across the country to come together to say ‘thank you’ to those fantastic coaches who continue to make a profound positive difference to the lives of individuals and their local communities. 

First class netball experiences happen through great coaching and in 2023-24, over 1,500 learners gained a coaching award to help inspire, grow, develop and retain netballers.

For this year’s celebration, UK Coaching is encouraging even more coaches to take a holistic approach to their coaching, treating everyone as individuals with unique needs, strengths, and motivations.

Holistic coaching goes beyond sporting experience, including building life skills and shaping individuals into well-rounded, confident, and resilient people, both in and out of sport. 

As coaches are rightly celebrated, UK Coaching is also calling for more to be done to support coaches and help them manage the increasing responsibilities of community coaching and the pressures of high performance. After all, coaches are people too. 

The good news is that the sector is working closer together to empower coaches to continue their learning and development, with the goal of integrating holistic coaching practices into all sport and physical activity with the inclusion of life skills like teamwork, leadership, and decision-making. This continues UK Coaching’s ‘Duty to Care’ campaign – to ensure that the care system in sport and physical activity is designed to support everyone.
