Making your session unmissable

Coaches are critical to the success of any youth sports session. In order to help create unmissable coaching sessions, sports coach UK and Sport England, have created a short animation and accompanying support guide for coaches to generate ideas for their sessions.

'What makes your session UNMISSABLE for young people' draws on recent research and contains fun ideas and tips for coaches.

Young people are not all the same and want experiences that are tailored to them – coaches need to understand their motivations, their likes, dislikes, hopes and dreams if they are to offer sessions young people want to return to.

Research has found that behaviour can vary from month to month, even week to week rather than always be the same and a positive experience for one young person might be very different to another. This series of animations and guides aims to help coaches see that young people are seeking meaningful experiences and need a reason to come back next week.

See the animation to see how you can make your session unmissable.
