Coaching GAME PLAN.

Sports coaching has been defined as ‘the purposeful improvement of an individual or team’s performance’, this depiction reflects the central position now given to the role and importance placed on effective coaching practice. Basketball England has re-energised its efforts and fuelled its thinking with regards to coaching and coach development and in doing so has committed to promoting this stance and its support for the role of coaching in basketball.

As a result, and with the support of the Basketball Development Model (BDM) coaching consultation group, staff members and volunteers, this game plan outlines how we intend to realise the central position of our coaches, their importance within any potential success and their role in meeting our sport’s objectives at all levels of participation. We will develop a coach workforce that is effective, informed and deployed in the right place at the right time.
