Coaching talking to team

Coaches make all the difference when it comes to participation. You’re on the frontline making sure people have a great experience of physical activity and sport. That’s why we’re passionate about supporting coaches. Whether you’re experienced or aspiring, we’re here to help you develop your skills and confidence.

We want to provide you with all the support you need to help individuals and teams thrive. On the left of this page you’ll find a list of resources and information – everything from funding and workshops to local coaching initiatives. 

Inclusivity is vital to our work. We’re proud to support schemes like Project500, which aims to get more women into coaching, and the Disability Coaching Network, which links up coaches and mentors within disability sport.

We provide financial support for volunteer or part-time paid coaches, officials and volunteers through the Hampshire County Council-funded bursary scheme. If you work part-time or as a volunteer and require financial support to develop your coaching skills take a look at the guidance notes on the left. Bursaries are available for Level 2 coaching awards and above (Level 1 for Project 500). Applicants must live within the Hampshire County Council area to qualify.
