SPIRIT Project: Sport Coaching for Mental Well-being
03/03/2022 15:02

The Sport & Psycho-social Initiative for Inclusive Training (SPIRIT) has published its recommendations for Coach Education and Club Management.  


The document outlines five recommendations to provide people and organisations involved in the education of grassroots sports coaches with strategic guidance in regards to nurturing the mental well-being of grassroots athletes.


The recommendations derive from a systematic literature review and a collection of good practice examples from sport clubs that promote mental well-being. They also include carefully considered feedback and insights from European sport or mental well-being experts via a Delphi Study. 


You can download the Recommendations from the ICSSPE resource section of the website HERE 



The SPIRIT project is to develop a framework for humane, inclusive and empowering coaching and sport clubs that nurture mental wellbeing.

Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, the project runs from January 2020 to December 2022.
