The third iteration of the CRiC biannual international coaching conference took place at MMU in Crewe, Cheshire, England over the 9th and 10th September 2015. Building on past CRiC conference successes, this event attracted most of the leading UK scholars researching into coaching politics, behaviours, policy, the history of coaching, and a number of other associated fields. As with earlier conferences, it provided an important platform for dissemination and networking, including meeting up with colleagues and socialising at the conference dinner. It also proved to be a successful medium through which postgraduate students working in the area could gain widespread exposure of their work. Selected papers from the conference were published in a special edition of Sports Coaching Review.
