Athlete A - Implications for Coaches

  • PaulT

    The latest documentary from Netflix focuses on the gymnasts who survived USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar's abuse and the reporters who exposed USAG's toxic culture. Now more than ever before we need to look after the people we work with regardless of where they are on their sport and physical activity journey.

    This week will be kicked off by UK Coaching Team and guests to look at the Athlete A documentary and the implications for coaches. We will look at coaches Duty to Care for the people they work with, and will cover some of the five pillars of UK Coaching's Duty to Care work (Safeguarding; Inclusion; Diversity; Mental Health and Wellbeing).

    UK Coaching, Duty to Care Toolkit and Digital Badge
    This toolkit will equip coaches with the knowledge and skills to provide great coaching experiences to others, as well as support coaches to begin to better look after themselves

    The Duty to Care Toolkit is a series of Knowledge Checks and coach learning resources set across the five distinct pillars that represent the Duty to Care ethos: Safeguarding, Inclusion, Diversity, Well-being and Mental Health. Complete the five free Knowledge Checks to earn our Duty to Care Digital Badge.

    Great coaching is beyond just the technical and tactical elements that make up the playing of a sport. It’s about the person-centred experience, ie a coach-participant relationship that is positive, motivational, caring and rewarding.

    Our comprehensive suite of learning aims to galvanise the coaching sector to fulfil their obligations around the education and provision of these five pillars of Duty to Care.

    We have established our own Duty to Care approach for the coaching sector to create more holistic and positive coaching benefits for all.

    This wraparound care will extend beyond the recipients of coaching, to include the whole coaching family. It is imperative that we look after the people looking after the people, so that the nation’s coaches feel their health and welfare is also being supported and protected.

    Therefore, it is incumbent to give coaches a starting point to assess where they need more help in this area, so UK Coaching can continue to support coaches across the UK based on their needs. They can then draw upon this support during their ongoing development and throughout their coaching practice. This will enable them to look after the people they coach, as well as their own well-being, effectively and appropriately.
