In 2013 sports coach UK undertook a research project, led by Leeds Met University, to understand more about disabled people’s experiences of being coached. The results of this research (The Coaching Chain: Reflections of disabled athletes and coaches) can be found by clicking here.
From this research sports coach UK created guidance, based on what disabled people have experienced and what they feel is needed from a coach to create a positive sporting experience. This information provides key points of best practice which can be implemented before and during your session. It will also provide you with further direction to develop your skills and knowledge further.
