Club and coach development
On your marks, get set, go! Club support programme.
Local sports clubs provide thousands of opportunities for adults and young people to get involved with sport in Wiltshire. These are often led by volunteers who give up their time to contribute to the running of the club. We support these clubs and volunteers by providing professional support.
For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01225 770213.
If you're looking for a sports club in your area, or wish to add your club's details to our club database, please visit Active Wiltshire.
The coach education programme helps clubs and coaches stay up to date with essential and informative courses. Wiltshire has a programme managed by WASP which offers a variety of courses. These range from child protection, first aid and fundamental movement skills to more specific workshops such as coaching disabled performers and raising the bar for coaching higher performance athletes. The programme runs from September to April annually across the county to ensure all coaches and clubs can access something locally. For more information contact Joy Rickard, WASP Business Support Officer at Joy@wiltssport.orgor call 01225 781500
The bursary scheme has been set up to support sport coaches at all levels to meet the required minimum standards for deployment set across the county implemented by UK Coaching.
Any individual who wishes to achieve a UKCC Level 1,2 or 3 qualification can apply. Individual applicants who wish to obtain qualifications to host, facilitate and/or be an activator in sport will also be considered. All applicants must be a resident of Wiltshire or Swindon and/or will be using their qualification within the county.
The maximum grant you can apply for is 50% of the actual course cost (not to include transport or accommodation) to a maximum of £200. in return for the grant we ask that you deliver 5 x 1 hour voluntary sessions in different settings including curriculum, extra-curricular, club and or community setting.
We have created the scheme in partnership with WASP.
