Roles and Responsibilities

Helps participants develop skills
Good organiser, motivator and communicator
Involves a range of roles and responsibilities
Ranges from looking presentable to structuring a session to cater for needs of all participants
When planning use the Sports Coach UK Code of Practice for Sports Coaches
Your responsibility to ensure that adequate first-aid provision is available.
First-Aider/First-Aid team needs to be available
First-Aid qualifications need to be up to date
Recommendations and guidelines are in place for different sports
Relates to the type of and appropriate use of that equipment
Sports have a recommended dress code which can involve safety of equipment to prevent injury
Protective equipment - Shin pads, mouth guards. Should be worn at all times (practices and matches)
Equipment should be fit for purpose - size of footballs/goals in relation to the age group
Use these questions to help:
What is the age of equipment?
What is the quality and condition?
Is the equipment being maintained correctly, including regular services and inspections?
How suitable is it for use by the age group involved?
Suitability of site
Key factors to your session but depends on a number of factors
Is the facility designed for that sports activity?
Accessibility of emergency exits
Noise/acoustics - difficult to hear
Accessibility/suitability for participants with particular needs.
Suitability of participants to activity
Are the participants suitable for the activity?
Good session plans are planned around the needs of the people that you are working with
Consider these factors:
Age/experience of participants
Number of participants
How well you know the group/they know you
Any specific learning needs?
Any behavioural issues?

How do the factors affect the level of risk within the session
All sessions have a set of guidelines
Complete a warm up/cool down
Play within the rules of the activity
Have appropriate personal and protective equipment
Are fit to take part in the session
All coaches must have insurance
NGB members can be covered
Insurance should cover public liability, products, professional indemnity, officers and officials and liable and slander
Effectiveness of risk management
Sports organisers must consider what is documented within the risk assessments
Risk assessments should be reviewed
Injuries, near misses and dangerous occurrences
Allow time to evaluate risk assessment strategies
Collect data on the type, frequency and nature of injuries helps evaluate if your activity is appropriate and safe
Note any near misses and how they occurred
Subsequent action to prevent further near misses and dangerous occurrences is a sign of a good sports organiser.
Suitability of group for activity and effectiveness of briefings
Must review
Were the session's goals achieved and were the activities suited to the group
Sessions usually start with a briefing about the emergency procedure and what the session will entail
Discipline and behavioural rules
Review of checking whether the participants understand needs to occur during the session not at the end
At the end there should be an overall review of suitability of the activity
Suitability of equipment
Before the session starts appropriate equipment should be selected (e.g. correct size of footballs for the age group)
Review should take place during the activity through observation and asking the participants to ensure they are using the equipment safely
Support of other agencies
governing bodies, local authorities or managers can help give support to you as a coach
Strengths and areas for improvement
Always consider:
Did you assess the facility prior to the session?
Did you observe the session for H+S
Was your plan detailed enough?
Were the participants briefed at the start?
Was all of your equipment appropriate for the session?
Was your facility appropriate for the session?
Did the participants understand?
Did any injuries/accidents/emergencies/near misses occur? If so how did you deal with them?
Were your risk management strategies effective? Do they need adapting for future sessions of this type?
