As the dust settles on an amazing #UKCoachingWeek, it’s important to remember that the #Born2Coach movement is just the beginning of inspiring a new generation of coaches
Mel Marshall, Adam Peaty’s coach,former Olympian & Lead Coach at the British Swimming Performance Centre, spoke to the Mirror about the importance of the coach recruitment drive and how anyone can coach:
“I feel incredibly passionate about the recruitment drive, having progressed from athlete to coach myself.
“The coaching workforce at all levels needs to be inclusive, diverse and accessible to all, and people need to be aware of the incredible opportunities coaching can bring to our lives both as participants and as coaches.
“Coaching is an innate skill that sits within you, whether you’re a new mum, a dad of four, a primary school teacher, an ex-athlete, or working in an office-based role, there are so many opportunities out there, to help shape the future of sport and physical activity.”
