Supporting Coaches

sportscotland offers ‘Supporting Coaches’ and ‘Volunteer Management for Clubs’ as part of our Volunteer Management portfolio to support those that develop and manage their club/organisation.

Supporting Coaches is a 3 hour classroom-based workshop designed to help you recruit, develop and recognise coaches more effectively. It will give you the opportunity to share your own good practice with others and pick up new ideas. The workshop is aimed at people who have a responsibility for recruiting, developing and retaining coaches, such as coaching coordinators, volunteer coordinators, committee leads, head coaches, manager of coaches, and sport development officers

Workshop attendance may be recognised as eligible to gain CPD points for licensing. Please speak with your SGB to check.
