Introduction

ByJames Wallis

In essence we are all still becoming sports coaches, regardless of experience, qualifications or status. As a result this book speaks directly to sport coaches from all levels. It draws on the accumulated experience of practitioners and academics who offer insights into their developmental journey to becoming a sports coach. Sport coaching is undergoing a significant period of change and evolution, even revolution, from a workforce largely made up of volunteers to a more ‘professional’ accredited vocation. This book focuses on enhancing coach practice and further supporting the continuing professional development of coaches at all levels.
