Coaches while we can not get out and physical coach adults and children in the sports we love, we can take this time to build our knowledge and skills in what we love to do. Below are a number of resources we have found that can get you started. If you know of any other online resources for coaches please drop us an email with details.

Coaches Share your Creative Ways to Stay Active!
To help Europeans exercise and remain physically active even under these unprecedented circumstances, the European Commission is launching a campaign to #BeActiveAtHome. Let’s support each other, propose new exercise ideas, and remain active!
Thanks to the #BeActive community, we can work together during this extreme turn of events, using social media as a way to boost activity! By posting with the hashtag #BeActiveAtHome and mentioning @EUSport on Twitter, @european_youth_eu on Instagram and @EUErasmusPlusProgramme on Facebook you can show what you are doing to stay fit (and have a little bit of fun in the bargain!). The best/funniest content will be shared on DG EAC social media accounts:
