Minimum Standards

In order to ensure 'Excellent coaching, every time, for everyone', UK Coaching has agreed core standards that all coaches in the UK should adhere to.

This document outlines the core standards that you need to know and meet as
a coach. There are recommendations across the following five areas:

• minimum age
• appropriate qualifications
• appropriate insurance cover
• safeguarding children and vulnerable groups
• policies and procedures.

Code of Practice for Coaches

The Code of Practice for Sports Coaches is an invaluable tool, adopted by many governing bodies of sport and employers of coaches. It provides an ethical framework in which to operate as a responsible, informed and enlightened coach.
