Coaching Adventure Sports


Coaching Adventure Sports is an accessible, user-friendly guide that teaches practitioners the components of good coaching whatever your field of practice. Written by two highly experienced coach educators, this book examines the specific challenges faced by Adventure Sports Coaches who work in natural environments or specifically constructed artificial spaces, with diverse groups of participants. It examines how to put theory into practice, covering such key topics as:

- Coaching for independence
- How we learn

- Embracing failure
- Dealing with fear
- Creating great coaching relationships
- Reflection on performance
- Developing as a coach

Each chapter contains real-life stories of putting theory into practice from established Adventure Sports Coaches in a range of fields, from paddlesports to mountaineering. This user-friendly guide is aimed at Adventure Sports Coaches at all levels of experience and includes tasks to help readers explore and consolidate new techniques and ideas.

With an emphasis on experimentation, adaptability and reflection, this book will inspire any coach or practitioner with an interest in adventure sports to try out new techniques and ways of delivery.
