UK Coaching Awards 2024: Nominate your inspiring coaches today!

“And the winner is…” Could it be your rowing coach, or another coach at your club?


Nominations for the UK Coaching Awards 2024 are now live, and the public, community clubs, participants, fellow coaches, and parents are being invited to put forward their outstanding coaches across the 10 different categories.

The awards – regarded as the most prestigious within the coaching community – are a national celebration event recognising the remarkable contribution and important role that coaches play in transforming lives and communities through sport and physical activity.

Last year’s winners ranged from British Canoeing’s inspirational Coaching Podcast to renowned football coach Peter Sturgess, who was honoured with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for his substantial impact on moulding the foundational learning phase for young players.

Submitting a nomination is your opportunity to say: ‘Your hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. Your passion inspires.’

This year’s categories have been chosen to celebrate the diverse ways in which coaches change lives and enrich communities. Nominees can be  anyone, from a local hero who inspires you, to a high-performance coach excelling in an Olympic year, or a champion of inclusive coaching who ensures everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

The categories include:

  • Young Coach of the Year
  • Community Coach of the Year (Children and Young People)
  • Community Coach of the Year (Adults)
  • High Performance Coach of the Year
  • Talent Development Coach of the Year
  • Change a Life Award
  • Online Coach of the Year.

There are also three additional categories for those who support, develop, and uplift our coaches:

  • Coach Developer of the Year
  • Inclusive Coaching Award
  • Coaching Podcast of the Year.

Let’s make sure that rowing coaches are recognised alongside coaches of other sports!
