Five different workshops

Positive Futures are looking to recruit and train young people as volunteer coaches to support their local communities.

The Coaching Futures programme offers a number of nationally recognised coaching workshops that will help candidates to learn new coaching skills. Five different workshops cover everything from first aid and safeguarding to being a multi-skill activator.

The courses run for five weeks at North Hykeham Youth Centre from 7 November to 5 December. Those who take up courses will be expected to carry out an additional 10 hours volunteering.

David Sampher, sports development manager, said:

“Coaching is a great way to be involved in sport and make a positive impact on young people’s enjoyment, confidence, health and wellbeing. This is an excellent opportunity for all those who want to become a sports coach. If you’re aged 16-24 then you can take your first steps to a career in sport with our Coaching Futures initiative.

“There will be mentoring from experienced community sports coaches alongside nationally recognised workshops and placements to help deliver coaching sessions to children and young people.

Lincolnshire County Council’s Positive Futures project aims to help young people from disadvantaged areas gain sports coaching and community leadership skills by volunteering at their local neighbourhood sports project.
