Coaching Support

Coaches are the main drivers of sport and physical activity and it's important that coach numbers continue to grow.

We have a team of casual sports coaches who deliver activities across Darlington. We offer our coaches development opportunities so they can improve on their current skills, knowledge and experience.

Funding

There may be funding and bursaries available to help you train. For more information, contact our Move More Team on 01325 254370 or email the Move More team

Move More Drop In

The Darlington Move More team offer a bi monthly Move More Drop In session, where all Move More coaches and Instructors are invited to come along and discuss and concerns and find out relevant information regarding what is happening within the Healthy Darlington team. For more information on these Drop in sessions please email shaun.marshall@darlington.gov.uk

All coaches must complete a Coaching Session Plan before delivering sessions both in schools and the community.  Coaches are regularly observed using a quality Coaching Checklist.

The Sports Coach UK website [external link] has lots of resources and advice on becoming a coach.
