'Coaching is a powerful catalyst for positive change within the UK. Effective sports coaches guide children, players, athletes and disabled people to follow their dreams, have fun and fulfil their potential.' (UK Coaching Framework, A 3-7-11 Year Action Plan)
It is easy to call yourself a coach, but it is not quite so easy to become a qualified and effective coach.
The right coaching delivered effectively can contribute greatly to the health and well-being of participants as well as impacting socially and in improving an individual’s self-esteem. Conversely, it is recognised that poor coaching can have quite a negative impact upon a participant’s technical, tactical, physical and psychological development and may in some instances be more detrimental than no coaching at all.
The Angling Trust are committed to supporting all active coaches in obtaining the necessary skills and qualifications to ensure the impact they have on participants is a positive one. We recognise that coaching is perhaps the most important factor to get right to ensure the long term impact on participant and national performance within Angling in England.
