Sports Coaching Resources
Welcome to the page where we give you details of other online resources available on the topic of coaching for sports.
Sports coaching and sport psychology are a fast growing field, perhaps because sport is an area of people’s lives where they can challenge and push themselves further, whether at the level of a professional athlete or the amateur sportsperson, both striving to improve and be the best they can.
Sporting pursuits are very closely tied in with our health, so it is natural that this is one of the areas that people seek support and require coaching for. Golf is the classic example of a sport where the mind’s performance is as important as the exercise of the body’s skills, and this idea is spreading to other individual and team sports.
