How to get into Coaching

All this week we are celebrating female coaches through #PassOnYourPassion

Are you ready to start coaching but not sure where to start? Here are some hints and tips to help get you started.

  • Are you already a member of a club, or have children that regularly attend a sports club? Speak to the coaches there and see how you can help out with the club. Most people start out supporting a coach and it is a great way to gain knowledge and experience. 
  • Sign up to to see what voluntary and paid opportunities there are near you.
  • Speak to the sport governing body or visit their website to see what advice they have for getting into coaching. 
  • Start an activity in your local area, or encourage people to get active with you. These small steps will all give you experience.
  • Speak to us - give us a call or email us and we can advise on the different ways you can get into coaching.
