To be successful, coaches need to be a member of the Coaches and Instructor Network and working with athletes/performers over the age of 14.

Tom Armstrong, Workforce Development Manager, said: “This coaching bursary enables coaches in Lincolnshire to gain a qualification to help them in their coaching journey.

“It is a great opportunity to reward and recognise our coaches, who work hard to create more active lifestyles.”

Coaches can apply for up to 50 per cent of the National Governing Body Coach Education course costs, with a maximum of £50 for Level 1, £100 for Level 2, and £150 for Level 3 upwards.
