From Arsene Wenger and Tracy Neville to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Judy Murray, many of us will know of an inspirational sporting coach. How do they go from good to great and provide the best experiences for their students?

25% of the UK population have coached some sport in their lives. Whether they’re providing training in football, rugby, tennis, athletics, swimming or any other physical pursuit, many coaches are volunteers lacking in time, support and formal qualifications.

Join ARU sports scientist Dr Anna Stodter as she examines how coaches filter and adopt or reject new ideas in their day-to-day practices.

Discover what this means for breaking the cycle of negative coaching practices, fostering open-mindedness and inclusivity and creating the next generation of champion coaches.
