The Institute for Sport Coaching is a not-for-profit organization devoted to the creation and delivery of educational experiences and leadership tools to sport coaches. Based in Acton, Massachusetts, USA, the Institute’s mission is to provide excellence in sport coaching education, ideally enabling sport coaches to be more effective in their mentoring of athletes. In the American sport system, the vast majority of coaches are volunteers and receive inadequate training. The Institute was founded in 2003 to be an organization that could provide educational opportunities to coaches across a wide spectrum of amateur sports. According to its website, the Institute aims to become the preeminent provider of sport coaching education, a goal facilitated by the creation of a leadership training center for professional, interscholastic, and youth sport coaches. This review includes a synopsis of the resources provide by the Institute, and evaluates both the content and format of the Institute’s webpage.
