BA (Hons) Sports Coaching & Development

Headshot of BA (Hons) Sports Coaching & Development student, Steven Nicklin

My placement allowed me to gain invaluable first-hand experience as a head coach, developing athletes in a BUCS environment. Make sure you take full advantage of any opportunities that come your way.

Exploring my chosen field
With the ambition of becoming an elite sports coach, Steven completed a placement at the University of Chester Volleyball Club.

Steven employed the theories and skills he had learned during his degree and put them to use when working with some of the team’s less experience players.

Steven’s time at Chester Volleyball Coaching was aided by the support of his degree and working alongside top coaches that allowed him the opportunity to transfer his knowledge and skills into a professional industry setting.

Steven has gained essential elite level coaching experience due to successful completion of this placement.

“Steven was incredibly prepared for each session. He had a solid training plan and delivered it effectively and patiently. He worked with some of our less experienced women’s players and I saw a lot more engagement in sessions as well as a notable improvement in technical ability from them. Steven is a credit to Edge Hill University.”
