Description The development of a sports coach is a complex and long-term process in which his education plays an essential role. In addition to formal education, the modern concept of lifelong learning also emphasizes non-formal and informal learning. However, this area of log life education of sports coaches is not yet sufficiently empirically explored. We conducted two questionnaire surveys in 2011 (n = 142) and 2016 (n = 142). They aimed to describe non-formal education and informal learning among selected coaches and to find out what future educational opportunities these coaches have and what limits they identify in their further education. The comparison of the investigations was aimed at determining whether, after five years, the non-formal and informal education of selected sports trainers developed. The data we find compared to 2011 and 2016 show some improvement in the access of selected coaches to non-formal and informal learning. The results also indicate institutions that participate directly or indirectly in coaching, where there are reserves in non-formal education and informal learning of sports coaches.
