How do you coach young people when life changes?

How do you coach young people when life changes?

Young people’s lives are full of change between the ages of 11 to 25 years - it is completely transforming. In collaboration with Sport England, sports coach UK has created its final in a series of three animations, this time featuring how to help with these life changes. Managing life changes or transitions is one of the main reasons why young people stop playing sport. On the flip side it can also be a time when a new sporting habit can be formed. The changes faced might include starting or changing schools, going through puberty, changing friendship groups, getting a phone and having an online presence on social media, all the way to moving out of home, going to college, starting work or having a family. As a coach you play a critical role in helping a young person maintain their sporting habit. You can help young people deal with change and uncertainty by providing information, emotional support and guidance. Say what you think of the video using #UnmissableSport on Twitter.
