WHAT IS POSITIVE SPORTS COACHING

Positive Sports Coaching is an innovative evidence based way of coaching teams and individuals built around the science of positive psychology.

The program is built around the science of optimism, positive feedback and process praise and has the dual aims of improving performance and promoting wellbeing. 

 

BACKGROUND
