For this year’s Awards, UK Coaching reviewed and redesigned its nominations process to ensure all coaches, from grassroots to the global stage, had the greatest chance of being recognised. This included: 

  • consulting with key partners to redevelop award categories and criteria to recognise the wide-ranging work that coaches do at all levels and in all communities
  • providing extra online guidance to support people when writing their nominations
  • engaging with more organisations than ever before to promote the value of nominating coaches for the Awards 

This proactive work led to the UK’s lead agency for coaching receiving an unprecedented number of nominations. These will now go through a rigorous, independent and impartial judging process before finalists are announced in October and November. 

Overall, there are 12 award categories, eight for coaches, three in support of coaches and the Great Coaching Moment of the Year. All honour #GreatCoaching and truly celebrate coaches and organisations that make a difference.

New for 2019 is the Changing Lives Award, which will be awarded to a coach who is leading the way to empower, inspire and connect people from diverse communities to overcome life challenges using the power of #GreatCoaching.

The Awards for Coaches are given to individual coaches who have excelled and shown outstanding commitment in a certain area, or to an individual and/or group over the last 12 months. Collectively, they are:

  • Children and Young People’s Coach of the Year - supported by sportscotland
  • Community Coach of the Year
  • Changing Lives Award
  • Talent Development Coach of the Year
  • High Performance Coach of the Year - supported by UK Sport
  • Young Coach of the Year - supported by Sport Wales

And the Coaching Chain, which recognises contributions made by individual coaches throughout an elite athlete’s life in helping achieve their potential.

The Awards in Support of Coaches recognise those who recruit, develop, educate, qualify, and/or deploy coaches effectively in the UK. Collectively, they are:

  • Coach Developer of the Year
  • Transforming Coaching Award
  • Coaching for an Active Life Award - supported by Sport England

The Great Coaching Moment of the Year, which celebrates a moment in time when a coach’s support and guidance paid off, will be back again this year.
