This workshop aims to help support sports coaches working with children and young adults to develop strategies and techniques to manage participants whose behaviour may have a negative impact on their coaching sessions. This could range from persistent low level disruption and ‘messing around’ through to more serious issues such as physical or verbal confrontations between participants, issues between participants and the coach or a refusal to engage in activities.


Designed and delivered by an experienced teacher, multi-qualified sports coach and behaviour management expert with over 10 years experience of working with young people. This course is suitable for any coach or other adult working with young people aged 3 to 18 in any sport of physical activity.


By attending the course, coaches will be able to:


– identify and understand various triggers which may lead to poor behaviour during coaching sessions
– reflect on their existing approach to managing poor behaviour and how successful this is in different situations
– develop a range of short term behaviour management tools which can be adapted for dealing with various issues
– consider how long term improvements in behaviour can be instigated through effective session planning
