Cash boost for sports coaches in county

Up to £150 is being made available to sports coaches in Lincolnshire who want to take a qualification.

Throughout November and December, coaches can apply for up to 50% of National Governing Body Coach Education course costs.

A maximum of £50 is available for Level 1, £100 for Level 2 and £150 for Level 3 upwards.

Coaches can also apply for the full course costs of attending generic coach education courses, such as ‘Equity in your Coaching’ or ‘Safeguarding and Protecting Children’, run by Lincolnshire Sports Partnership.

Lizzie Borrill, Workforce Development Manager at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “We want to support coaches across Lincolnshire and understand that funding coaching qualifications can be very hard for individual coaches and sports clubs. “
