The International Sport Coaching Framework marks a watershed in the history of coaching globally by providing an internationally recognised reference point for the development of coaches.
The direct funding scheme for school sport, announced last year, is going to be extended for a further five years.
Each year primary schools will continue to receive £8,000, plus £5 per pupil.
As well as promoting good health, Mr Cameron says, school sport has an important role in building “confidence and a sense of achievement”.

Created by the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE), the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF), and Leeds Metropolitan University (LMU), the Framework represents a significant step toward establishing consensus.

This comprehensive guide also includes sport-specific power training regimes for basketball, soccer, football, rugby and volleyball, and shows how to integrate those plans into a total athlete development programme.
