Nominations for the 25th UK Coaching Awards are now open

UK Coaching is opening nominations for its annual awards, highlighting the fundamental role that coaches play at every level of the sporting spectrum.

From local rinks to World Championships, coaches are there, developing and leading their participants forward, helping to make memories. Now is the time to celebrate the great work that coaches do.


With 13 categories open, the awards – in their milestone 25th year – seek to reward the fantastic achievements of coaches who have truly peaked at their vocation or through volunteering, demonstrating what great coaching means, and helping people to build a healthy relationship with physical activity and sport.

UK Coaching has introduced two brand-new awards to recognise the digital transformation of the coaching profession that was accelerated during the pandemic:

Online Coach of the Year – recognises a coach who delivers #GreatCoaching online via social media, apps, or other online methods.

Podcast of the Year – recognises a coach-led podcast that delivers, inspires, and informs #GreatCoaching.
