Are you ready to Play Their Way?

Tuesday 23rd May 2023

We’re excited to be supporting the launch of the biggest grassroots movement to transform children’s coaching!

Our goal is for all children and young people — regardless of age, background or ability — to have a voice, choice and decide their journey when participating in sport and physical activity, so they develop a genuine and lifelong love for being active.


So what is child-first coaching?

Child-first coaching is an evidence-informed approach that prioritises the fundamental rights of all children and young people in sport and activity, regardless of their age, gender, background, or ability.

There are three key ingredients of this approach which reflect the rights of children and young people to be heard, to play and to develop.

Find out more about the Play Their Way movement by checking out their website where you will find insight into where this movement came from, resources which you can use in your practice and ways to join the movement.
