Athletes and sports people at all levels rely on their coaches for advice, guidance and support. Foundations of Sports Coaching is a comprehensive introduction to the practical, vocational and scientific principles that underpin the sports coaching process. It provides the student of sports coaching with all the skills, knowledge and scientific background they will need to prepare athletes and sports people technically, tactically, physically and mentally. With practical coaching tips, techniques and tactics highlighted throughout, the book covers all the key components of a foundation course in sports coaching, including:  

  •   the development of sports coaching as a profession
  •   coaching styles and technique
  •   planning and management
  •   basic principles of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and psychology
  •   fundamentals of training and fitness
  •   performance analysis
  •   reflective practice in coaching.

Including international case-studies throughout and examples from top-level sport in every chapter, Foundations of Sports Coaching helps to bridge the gap between coaching theory and practice. This book is essential reading for all students of sports coaching and for any practising sports coach looking to develop and extend their coaching expertise.
