Health and Wellbeing

All you need to know about looking after yourself and the people around you

Along with being a safe coach, we want to make sure you know where to find all of the information you need about how you can support the ongoing physical and mental wellbeing of your athletes, and yourself as a coach. Whether it’s basic first aid, or learning to develop a better work/life balance, there are a wealth of learning opportunities available.

First Aid

Coaches can use any provider of first aid courses as long as it includes practical CPR.  Always check that organisations are a registered  training provider. The Health and Safety Executive provides guidance as to what you should expect from a registered training provider.
