How can I be a coach? How can I get qualified as a coach? Once qualified, what opportunities are there for me to coach? Well…..the best thing to do if you are interested in becoming a coach is to contact Living Sports Projects Officer (Coaching), Joe Notarnicola. Telephone: 01487849922, email: joe.notarnicola@livingsport.co.uk.

There are four main pathways within coaching and you may fall into one or more;

  • Children’s Coaching,
  • Participation Coaching,
  • Performance Development Coaching and
  • High Performance Coaching.

Whether you are a novice coach in all pathways, or an expert coach in one area, there are still development opportunities that you can access.

In addition to your coaching qualification(s), if you are working with children you will need to have an up to date Safeguarding and Protecting Children Qualification and all coaches are recommended to have a Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS, previously Criminal Records Bureau, CRB) check. See our Events list for information about local courses, including ones run by Living Sport.

Once you have qualified, check out the Coaching:HQ pages on this website for the possibility of paid coaching work!
