The three-year project promotes and supports good governance in sport by preparing coaching policy recommendations for national and international sport federations, coaching bodies and governments.


The results of the PEAK Project are beneficial to:

  • Coaches: Enhancement of the coaching programmes they participate in, clarity of their roles and responsibilities in organisational governance, and advancement of coaching towards a regulated profession.
  • Sport Federations: Improved coaching leadership at all levels, and improved relationships with coaches and coaches’ associations.
  • Governments: Improved coaching systems, by improving the recognition of coaching as a profession and through increased focus on health, participation and prevention of ethical issues in sport.

The Peak project ran from January 2019 to March 2022.
