8 Thinking about where your sport and/or coaching is going

To finish your work for this week, you will now use social media to express your views.

Activity 7 Where is coaching and sport going next?

Timing: Allow about 15 minutes

Make a post to an appropriate online network (i.e. the Succeed at OU sport, fitness and coaching Facebook page [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] or your own blog) about where your sport and/or coaching is going, based on you what you have read. Articulating your thoughts is a good way of making them explicit and will help clarify your thinking.


By expressing your thoughts, it may well create dialogue with others. It will be fascinating to see how different viewpoints emerge and the influence of what you have read.
