... and where would any paper be without peer review? We are delighted to award @zoe_avner the @SportsCoachingR Reviewer of the Year Award! Super! 👏👏👏

We got to celebrate with @TomLeeder as @CharlieCorsby presented Tom with the @SportsCoachingR best paper from 2024!
If you like intelligent yet accessible work on Deleuze, then this is for you! 👏👏👏

....and not only did @ndemps86 have a superb conference and podcast with the marvellous @TheCoaching_Hub, he only went and won best presentation at #CRiC2024! Bravo 👏👏👏

Talking of awards, #CRiC2024 was very delighted to present Dr Han Wool Lee from Seoul National University the best early Career Researcher Presentation award! He also smashed the @TheCoaching_Hub podcast too 👏👏👏

Taking a moment to reflect on the amazing #CRiC2024 made all the more brilliant by the organising committee and staff from @NorthumbriaUni, but the delegates who made it happen. Fabulous work from Laura Hill for best poster! 👏👏👏

Research and Networking Opportunities like never before

The Cluster for Research into Coaching (CRiC) was formed at Manchester Metropolitan University in 2010 under the leadership of Professor Dave Day and Dr Bill Taylor with aim of developing critical coaching scholarship in the fields of pedagogy, sociology, history and law. CRiC has become known as the leading research group in the UK concerned with the sociology, pedagogy, history and ethics of sports coaching. CRiC has an emerging international reputation in these areas and will seek to continue to grow in influence and reputation.
