The Sporting Resource

The Sporting Resource is a website that aims to provide a platform for the coaching community to discover and share resources from around the world. It is a community-driven platform to share sports resources, where coaches can find resources and materials to help them with their coaching.

The Sporting Resource platform was founded by Richard Cashman, an individual with a passion for sports coaching, who recognized a need for a community-driven platform that facilitates the discovery and sharing of resources among the coaching community. An experienced UEFA B coach with over 11 years of experience in the field. With a diverse range of qualifications, including a degree in Sports Coaching, a PGCE in Further Education, and a Counselling Level 3. Experience extends across a wide range of age groups, from the foundation level to the senior level.

Our goal is to provide a vast array of resources for the coaching community, by actively seeking and curating materials from various sources. Any resources that are created by third parties will be fully attributed to the original creators, in recognition of their contributions to the field of sports coaching.

We invite you to explore, enjoy, and make use of the resources available on our platform and encourage you to share the website with others in the coaching community. We hope that you will find valuable information and inspiration as you continue to discover the resources offered on our site,

The Sporting Resource offers free resources and materials, and we appreciate any donation to sustain the page’s growth.

Previously: The Sporting Influencer

The Sporting Resource website, formerly known as The Sporting Influencer, was founded by Richard Cashman with the objective of fostering education and encouraging contributions to help coaches, organisations, and parents navigate a wide range of topics and concerns within the youth sports environment.

Through our extensive research and observations, we have had the opportunity to explore the diverse range of attitudes and approaches taken by parents towards youth sports, including the positive, the indifferent, and the negative. Our website offers a wealth of information, including interviews, quotes, guest blogs, videos, and resources, all of which provide valuable insights and perspectives on the impact of parental involvement on the overall youth sports experience.

It is important to note that some of the resources available on the website may still be referred to as “The Sporting Influencer” as it was the former name of the website.

To begin the process, here are three questions I’d like you to consider, answers and reflect?…..
