UK Sport has identified coaching as a key element of the high performance system in the UK.

Coaching, alongside other key performance support services such as Sports Medicine and Sports Science, Performance Lifestyle and Research and Innovation, plays a crucial role in ensuring the ongoing success of British athletes.

The UK Sport coaching team seeks to ensure the delivery of quality coaching to athletes on UK Sport’s World Class Performance Pathway, a system devised to identify, develop and refine talented British athletes.

To achieve this, the UK Sport World Class Coaching Strategy must deliver targeted and innovative programmes and interventions specific to the needs of world class coaches.
