funetics has joined forces with icoachkids
Announced today at the icoachkids International Conference 2020, icoachkids and England Athletics (including funetics) have signed a project supporter agreement to signal the importance of developing a high-quality youth sport coaching workforce.
iCoachKids and England Athletics have very close related objectives to improve the health, wellbeing and participation of children and young people in sport and physical activity services. iCoachKids aims to create a common space for coaches as well as providing a series of open source materials and courses easily accessible to all.
England Athletics has a proven track record in supporting coaches to ensure that sport is a positive experience for children and young people. As a grassroots and development body, England Athletics aims to inspire more athletes and runners of all abilities and backgrounds to fulfil their potential and have a lifelong love for the sport; hence their creation of funetics – a fun athletics programme for children aged 4-11 years.
A strong alliance between iCoachKids and England Athletics would promote sharing of knowledge, create new networks and allow for the joint development of international resources and materials that promote shared objectives.
