Themed UK Coaching resources for England Boxing coaches
April 16, 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.
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.
Each week will cover a different theme and include #Return2Coach: The Reopening Roadmap, 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 when the theme is made on a website article each week, the posting of which will be advertised on social media.
However, for some of the content, coaches will need to register with UK Coaching, while other parts, such as workshops, will require the payment of a fee.
“Working with UK Coaching is a key part of the future of coach learning with England Boxing,” said England Boxing’s Coaching Consultant, Chris Porter.
“England Boxing is looking to develop a high quality of choice for coaches – and UK Coaching offer a great range of development options.”
The UK coaching resources support England Boxing’s formal qualifications and the continuing professional Development (CPD) opportunities made available via projects such as the Level 2 Progression workshops and Female Development Programme.
Hilary Lissenden, England Boxing Director and Chair of the Coaching Sub-committee, added: “Our thanks go to UK Coaching for this great range of added-value resources.
“I’d encourage all of our coaches to access those that best suit their learning needs and interests.
“This can only build on the wealth of skills and expertise already possessed by England Boxing volunteers, at all levels of the coaching pathway.”
