Take a look at the clip below of Sir Chris Hoy on how crucial coaches have been throughout his career.

Coaching is a great way of getting involved in your sport and to enable others to experience it too. People coach for different reasons, to develop their own experiences and or to develop skills and experiences for others through sport and physical activity. There are many ways of starting on the coaching ladder; it could be as simple as taking a ten minute session at your local club to get you inspired. Living Sport can help to signpost you to coaching courses if you wish to become a qualified coach, the advice pages to the right hand side will also provide you with more information about how to get started, coach development and local funding pots.

See below some quotes collected from local coaches to explain what motivates them to coach in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

Coaching is key when initiating activity and motivating people to take part and can be delivered both formally and informally, coaches can come in all shapes and sizes and with all levels of qualifications from casual session helpers, parents/carers, activators, level one’s to up to level five in some sports. There is a place for you on this pathway and there’s no better job to get people up and off of their sofas and moving!
