Quick Guide to Inclusive Coaching

This easy resource from UK Coaching (formerly Sports Coach UK) helps coaches understand how to plan fully inclusive coaching sessions to ensure all participants can take part and improve.

In coaching terms, an ‘inclusive coach’ has the ability to positively and effectively coach a group of athletes who may have very different needs. This is not specific to coaches working with disabled children, players and athletes – good coaches will always be working inclusively because they want everyone in their session to improve.

There is no magic formula for inclusive coaching, and some athletes have combined and complex needs. The key is to keep communicating with those who are being coached.
