Great Coaching: Tim Morris on developing and inspiring rowers

Tim Morris talks about his passion for coaching and how completing the Level 4 qualification has enhanced his approach

Despite his 50 years’ experience in rowing, studying for a Level 4 coaching qualification showed Durham ARC coach Tim Morris that there’s always more to learn. “It’s pretty well altered the way I think about everything I do in coaching,” he says. “I’ve gained as a coach but, more importantly, as a person.”

The Level 4 consists of a Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Sports Coaching delivered over two years by the University of Gloucester, combined with a wrap-around element delivered by British Rowing.

“I always promised myself that when I retired, I would do a degree and it was an opportunity to gain a degree-level qualification in something I love.”
