New coaching sessions available

Coaching is a great way to express your passion for a sport. Many community clubs survive on volunteers to actively get involved instead of standing on the sideline. WLCT are asking for such volunteers to help people of all ages in your community benefit from an active lifestyle.

It is not only exciting and self satisfying but you can have a positive influence on people’s lifelong involvement in sport. It will also help you to keep you active both mentally and physically.
There are many ways in ways to get involved, such as helping your local club, getting involved in your children’s sporting activities, boosting someone’s self esteem, or even helping to support the next elite sports star!
One of the best starting place for trying out coaching is to assist a coach. Most coaches will be grateful for any help you can give. So why not try it out? What do you have to lose?
To coach independently, most sports will require you to have a minimum standard of training and their governing bodies of sport run their own coaching qualifications. For example, the Football Association (FA) is the governing body for football, the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) for tennis and so on.
In order to ensure Excellent Coaching Every Time for Everyone, sports coach UK, along with key industry Partners, has agreed core standards that all coaches in the UK should adhere to (previously referred to as core minimum standards for deployment). As an active coach, it is important for you to meet the core standards for many different reasons. Here are just a few reasons why:
to ensure you have the right level of qualification, knowledge and skills for your coaching role
to safeguard you and the participants you coach
to ensure you have the right level of insurance
to improve the coaching opportunities you can access
