Our next coach should be a very familiar face of the UK Competition and coaching scene and we’re looking forward to seeing him in November!
Tom Greenall started his coaching journey with a BSc in Sports Coaching giving him a broad understanding of what it means to help people achieve their best in their passion. He then went on to work as Sports Development Officer for Sheffield schools for a number of years, allowing him to work in a variety of settings to expand and develop his skill set.
In recent years Tom decided to focus his passion for coaching towards his passion for climbing. His position as GB Junior Bouldering Team Manager and Coach was fundamental in the GBR team’s development and success. Not only did he support and coach all the members but particular 1:1 coaching helped athlete Tara Hayes to a World Silver Medal.
Simultaneously he was able to affect the culture of coaching within climbing in a wider sense by co-writing the MTUK coaching award scheme thus raising the standards of coaching practice and also bringing people together to share knowledge and skills by running the annual BMC Coaching Symposium.
