“What an honour it was to see so many inspirational coaches be recognised for their outstanding contributions to coaching.
“These coaches, and all our UK Coaching Awards finalists, don’t just support more people into physical activity and sport, they also change lives, tackle inequalities and help build communities. They also have an insatiable appetite to be the best versions of themselves in order to help their participants.
