#PassOnYourPassion is a campaign running across Northern England to recognise and reward female sports coaches plus inspire the next generation.
We asked people to nominate female coaches who inspire them, their friends or family to take part in sport.
We had over 100 nominations and each coach has been sent a baton to pass onto someone who they think will make a good coach and therefore #PassOnYourPassion.
If you haven’t had a baton, but are interested in becoming a coach, get in touch HERE.
Did you know*:
• Just 30% of coaches are women
• Only 17% of qualified coaches are women
• 30% of clubs can’t find enough coaches to fulfil demand. More female coaches means more coaches, full stop!
The campaign across the north was coordinated by Greater Sport who started the campaign in 2016
