Athlete-centred Coaching - 2nd Edition

An athlete-centred, humanistic approach to coaching is a powerful tool to enable athletes to learn and encourage them to own and take responsibility for the development of a quality team culture. The result is enhanced athlete performance and a thriving, supportive team environment.

Athlete-centred Coaching: Developing decision makers (second edition) promotes a philosophy of creating sportspeople who are great human beings. Six coaches and three athletes-involved in sports from international to school-aged level-share their knowledge, stories and philosophies, offering practical insights into how athlete-centred coaching can be put into practice. These successful, athlete-centred, humanistic coaches inspire their athletes and encourage them to make informed decisions.

These coaches' stories of success offer a pathway by which coaches in pursuit of athlete excellence can adopt an athlete-centred, humanistic approach in their own practice.
