Coaching Futures

Organised sport relies on volunteers and for Positive Futures Lincolnshire it is no different. From the weekly commitment of running our local community sessions to playing important roles in staging our county multisport events, volunteers make a significant impact on our work.

They can be known to young people as activators, instructors, leaders, teachers or trainers. But no matter what the label, the end result is always the same - by providing great coaching to young people it increases the likelihood of them continuing their sporting involvement in the future.

Coaching is a great way to be involved in sport and make a positive impact on young people’s enjoyment, confidence, health and well-being.

The aim is to recruit and train young people aged 16-24 as volunteer coaches and deploy them in local communities through our network of Positive Futures projects.

Evidence indicates that in the UK, young people from the most disadvantaged communities are nearly twice as unlikely to be coached, to volunteer, be part of a sports club and to become sports coaches compared to those young people from more prosperous areas.

Coaching Futures was developed by Positive Futures Lincolnshire in partnership with StreetGames to help address this inequality and realise the positive benefits sport can make to the quality of life in our communities and young people.


The programme will provide opportunities for young people interested in coaching to receive mentoring from experienced community sports coaches for a period of at least 12 weeks, gain knowledge, skills and certification through nationally recognised workshops. Young people will also be supported with a development plan and into placements to help deliver coaching sessions to children and young people.

Workshops on offer:

  • Managing Challenging Behaviour - 6 November
  • Developing actively resilient young people - 13 November
  • Multiskill Activator - 20 November
  • Safeguarding - 27 November
  • First Aid - 4 December

All workshops will be running 6.30 pm until 9.30pm at North Hykeham Youth Centre, Middle Street, Lincoln, LN6 9QX

We are expecting everyone to complete all the workshops and 10 hours of volunteering to “graduate”. If you would like any further information please get in touch at
