In response to new government-led initiatives to invest in and develop coaching, this book is the first introduction to pedagogical theory for coaching. Bringing helpful insights from educational theory to bear on coaching practice, The Sports Coach as Educator expands and enriches the role of the coach and allows professionals to approach their work in new and inventive ways. Exploring the nature of coaching, this text covers: * educational concepts in coaching * coaching, teaching and leadership * athletes' learning * coaching communities and the social process * reflective practice * mentoring * developing expert coaches.

Sociology of Sports Coaching, Paperback (November 2010)
Sports coaching is a social activity. This book argues that an understanding of sociology and social theory can help us better grasp the interactive nature of coaching and consequently assist in demystifying the mythical 'art' of the activity. It is suitable for serious students of sports coaching or the sociology of sport.
