Coaching Children in Sport provides an up-to-date, authoritative and accessible guide to core knowledge and coaching skills for anybody working with children in sport.

Written by a team of leading international coaching experts, teachers, psychologists and specialists in children's issues in sport and health, the book explains why children should not be treated as mini-adults in sport and helps coaches to devise effective ways of working that not only achieve results but also take into account the best interests of the child. It examines key topics such as:

fundamental coaching skills coaching philosophies and models children's physical and psychosocial development children's motivation safeguarding and child protection issues and coaching ethics sport and children's health talent identification and high performance coaching reflective practice in sports coaching.
