The Sports Coaching Podcast

As a football coach coming from an academic background, I think that there is a massive gap between the academic and practical side of Sports Coaching. I created the Sports Coaching podcast to attempt to bridge this gap.

Samuel Holmshaw – Creator of The Sports Coaching Podcast

Each week, I invite coaches from various sports, contexts and backgrounds to explore and discuss topic’s within sports coaching academia, and explain, as coaches how we can begin to implement these ideas into our coaching practice.

The Sports Coaching podcast was recommended as one of the top 20 sports coach podcasts to listen to in 2021 by
