Matside Coach Award

Matside coaching is one of the most rewarding aspects of coaching; it is also probably one of the most difficult to do well. Some coaches seem to have the personality which lends itself to this role; they seem to get the best performances out of the player very often getting them to raise their game at the crucial time. 

British Judo’s Matside Coach Award provides the coach with the skills and knowledge which will allow them to improve their Matside coaching and deliver quality service and duty of care to the players they are coaching. Professionalising this important role is the principal aim, ensuring that the coach and player’s behaviour is consistent with the values of the sport and there is strict adherence to the British Judo Association’s Code of Conduct and Ethics.
