Coaching Matters: Around the Web April 2013


Welcome to the second edition of Coaching Matters, a round up of coaching articles I have found useful in April 2013. In the month that Manchester United won their 20th Premier League title and the British & Irish Lions announced the squad for the tour to Australia there have been some great quality reads and I have collated them all into one article just for you!

First up a few special mentions. Number one goes to a fascinating 2 part interview with Derek Evely on Stuart McMillan’s blog. Derek was the High Performance Centre Manager for UK Athletics at Loughborough and gives a warts and all inside view of his time spent in coaching with UKA and around the World. I feel his 10 point checklist for young coaches at the end of Part II is of particular use to any coach.

Click here for Part I and click here for Part II. Also you may be interested in some videos of Derek presenting his thoughts on Physical Preparation and Common Errors in Planning.

Second special mention goes to the UCoach resource where I found those 2 videos. Run by Tom Crick (click the link and give him a follow on Twitter) it is a great resource for British Athletics and any sporting coach given the breadth of material featured on there with some truly World class coaches interviewed.

Here is the rest which I have attempted to categorise:

General Coaching

Sport Science

Skill Acquisition

Movement Skills
