UK Coaching Awards: Nominations Now Open!

The UK Coaching Awards aim to honour and reward the work of those from the sport and physical activity sector who have gone above and beyond in #GreatCoaching across all levels in the UK. This year's awards also present an opportunity to celebrate the work of coaches during the challenging Covid-19 lockdown period, and to support The Great Coaching Comeback and ongoing efforts to empower people to return to sport and physical activity.

There are 11 award categories, eight for coaches and three in support of coaches. The Awards for Coaches are given to individuals who have excelled and shown outstanding commitment in a certain area, or to an individual and/or group over the last 12 months. Collectively, they are:

  • Community Coach of the Year - Children & Young People
  • Community Coach of the Year - Adults
  • Young Coach of the Year
  • Changing Lives Award
  • Talent Development Coach of the Year
  • High Performance Coach of the Year
  • Lifetime Achievement Award*
  • And the Coaching Chain*

*These award categories are not open for public nominations.

The Awards in Support of Coaches recognise those who recruit, develop, educate, qualify, and/or deploy coaches effectively in the UK. Collectively, they are:

  • Coach Developer of the Year
  • Transforming Coaching Award
  • Coaching for an Active Life Award

Public nominations for the awards will close at 10:00 on the 13 September, so make sure to leave plenty of time to fill out the application for your chosen coach/individual.
