The fully revised third edition of the popular Foundations of Sports Coaching textbook aims to provide a comprehensive and engaging introduction to the practical and theoretical principles that underpin the sports coaching process, from both a participation and performance perspective.

It provides a wealth of real-world examples and up-to-date case studies from a wide range of sports to support the developing practitioner and help sports coaches understand how to apply key concepts and theories to their practice.

the continuing professionalisation of sports coaching
the International Sports Coaching Framework (I.C.C.E.)
the fundamental skills of a sports coach
how to coach populous groups
creating a positive learning environment
talent ID and sevelopment
the reflective coach
performance analysis to support coach feedback.
