“Coaching no longer revolves exclusively around coaches … based on the expectations of the athletes, coaching today is about the combined inter-relating between the coach and the athlete” – Dr Sophia Jowett

Michael Ayres (St Mary’s University) and Dr Sophia Jowett (Loughborough University) were joined by Ben Bartlett (The FA) this week for an expert panel discussion on the importance of the coach-player relationship.  The webinar was broadcast live thanks to Coach-Logic with coaches accessing the feed and engaging through the comments and questions section from across the world.

Leinster Rugby would like to express our sincere thanks to Sophia, Ben and Michael along with Tom, Kenneth and Andy from Coach-Logic.
