Themed UK Coaching resources week 5 – Coaching Children

May 20, 2021 | by Matt Halfpenny


UK Coaching is offering support to England Boxing coaches as the Covid-19 lockdown continues to ease thanks to a series of online learning resources – with week 5 focusing on Coaching Children.

They offer valuable assistance for coaches of all abilities, not just around the return of in-person coaching following the Coronavirus Pandemic, but also on an ongoing basis for those looking to improve their skills.

The resources – a mixture of tips, webinars, infographics, templates, workshops, guides, videos, diagrams and expert opinion – will be made available over the course of the next six weeks.

The six themes are Return to Coaching, Coaching Philosophy, Coaching the Person and Developing Relationships, Wellbeing, Coaching Children and Inclusive Coaching.

To access the material, England Boxing members will simply need to click on the links on the topics below.

While some of the content is free, others will need coaches to register with UK Coaching, and others, such as workshops, will require the payment of a fee.
