As well as this year being the 20th anniversary of the UK Coaching Awards, it also marks the relaunch of UK Coaching. The relaunch focusses on a wider definition of coaching, acknowledging its impact on physical and mental well-being, as well as individual, economic and social development.
Chief executive officer at UK Coaching, Mark Gannon, said:
'This is a particularly special year for the Awards, as we celebrate its 20th birthday and its first under our new remit of UK Coaching.
'The Awards are a unique opportunity for us to recognise and reward the work of excellent coaching at all levels across sport and physical activity, from community to high performance. And I have high-expectations that the coaching community in its entirety will be out in force to nominate this year.'
