Funding Available For Level 1 Coaching Courses in the North East
In the run up to the 2012 Olympics and beyond, the Tony Blair Sports Foundation aims to increase participation in sport by young people in the North East by helping more young people and adults become trained coaches and officials.
In partnership with British Cycling they are looking to recruit more Level 1 coaches who will work alongside experienced coaches in cycling clubs across the North East. The Foundation will pay 50% of the costs of Level 1 coaching/official qualifications and will then work with you to find a suitable coaching placement within your community if you are not already attached to a local community club.
Once qualified, members receive will a foundation membership pack which includes an exclusive membership number and card which entitles you to the full benefits of being part of the Foundation, including the opportunity to do a Disability Inclusion Coaching Course free of charge. All that they ask in return is that you agree to volunteer some of your time in your local cycling club.
