Performance coaching principles


This is the framework of principles that help to support coaches to develop world class players along the Player Pathway.

We’ve worked closely with leading experts in performance to outline six core principles that will drive and improve performance coaching to support the most promising players on the player pathway. These principles will provide a structure for coaches to learn and develop and be the foundation of their day-to-day work, on and off the court.


Watch the video below to find out more about the Performance Coaching Principles and how the principles were developed.


Performance Coaching Principles - what are they?


Each of the six principles are broken down into their core elements below, along with a video to showcase each one.  

This framework of principles acts as a support tool to provide relevant, specific, world-leading content to upskill coaches in performance coaching. This content is hosted on LTA Learn and level 4 and 5 accredited+ coaches have access via the link below to these courses that have been developed. In addition, the Performance Coaches Institute is a platform for performance coaches to access relevant performance coaching content, and as a coach working in high performance on the player pathway, can be accessed below.
