If you are a member of a community club looking for coach education support, please talk to your club about your club affiliation.

Some clubs at some points have a need to train volunteers to support the activities of the club. We can subsidise the costs for volunteers in your club to attend certain courses to help with their role in the club. To access this support you need to Affiliate with Coach Education support. If you take up this option there is a fee of £150 per year.

If you take this option, your club will be guaranteed £500 worth of support within the year affiliation period (April to March). Any requests over this amount will be subject to available funds. Clubs will need to prioritise their requests, based on the club needs.
