British Equestrian Federation triumphs at Coaching Awards
The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) has won the Governing Body of the Year at the UK Coaching Awards 2009.
The glittering awards ceremony which is hosted by Sports Coach UK, was held in London on Tuesday 8 December and presented by John Inverdale. The awards honour the success of coaches and coaching organisations over the last 12 months. It was a highly competitive category which included the Rugby Football Union and British Swimming with the BEF coming out on top.
The accolade, supported by Sports Structures incorporating jobswithballs.com, is awarded to a governing body that has made a significant contribution and impact on the development of a coaching system and individual coaches across the UK.
Andrew Finding, the BEF’s Chief Executive, says: ‘We are delighted to have won this award – it’s fantastic to be recognised as a leading sport in this area. The lottery funding we receive has been instrumental in allowing the Federation as a whole to professionalise the sport. Last night the judges also recognised our collaborative work. The great thrill has been to see our broad community working together, be they from Vaulting, Driving, Show Jumping, the British Horse Society, the RDA or the Pony Club, from England, Scotland or Wales. It is the effectiveness of this collaboration of equals that has made the difference.
‘It’s a tribute to the hard work and dedication of everyone, but particularly Colin Wilson, who started the work in a consultancy role for us, and then Head of Sports Development, Suzanne Genery who has provided the leadership in coaching within our Federation. I want also to pay tribute to the leaders of our 16 member body organisations that make up our Federation – these are the people who have made it happen on the ground – thank you all.’
Joanna Jones, Equestrian Coaching Systems Manager at Sports Coach UK, said: ‘The BEF truly deserve to be recognised for this award. They have placed coaching at the heart of their delivery and significant work has taken place through the BEF Coaching Development Action Team to create a clear vision for coaching for the forthcoming years.’
The BEF is the recognised governing body of horse sports in the UK. It exists to provide leadership, vision and purpose in steering the direction of equestrianism.
Equestrian is one of the priority sports working with Sports Coach UK to develop the UK Coaching Framework. The framework highlights how Sports Coach UK plans to work in close partnership with governing bodies of sport to enhance the quality and quantity of coaches at all levels, leading to increased and sustained participation and improved performance.
