Coach Funding Programmes
Make your sessions Unmissable (Satellite Clubs)
Coaches are critical to the success of any youth sports session.
Young people are not all the same and want experiences that are tailored to them – coaches need to understand their motivations, their likes, dislikes, hopes and dreams if they are to offer sessions young people want to return to.
We'd like coaches to develop your understanding of young people seeking meaningful experiences and needing a reason to come back to your sessions. We feel this will strengthen your Satellite Club.
Clubs or organisations can apply for up to a maximum of £500 for coaches or volunteers to attend a development opportunity according to the needs of your young people attending your Satellite Club sessions. There is no deadline for applications and more than one person per club/organisation can apply.
If you have an existing Satellite Club, please complete the name of your club and section 4 & 5. New applications are required to complete all sections.
Application can be downloaded here.
There are award conditions as part of satellite clubs which can be accessed here.
