Applications open for coaching bursaries

Back to News

Posted 6th September 2021

Yorkshire Sport Foundation is making up to £10,000 available to provide more qualified sports coaches in South Yorkshire and West Yorkshire.

Individuals who are part of a club or community organisation that provides sport or physical activity can apply for grants of up to £150 towards a coaching qualification of their choice, which is designed to create a more skilled workforce across the two counties.  It is is part of a wider Sport England funded, ‘Club Matters Local’ project that aims to create a more supported and connected club network through training, learning and targeted development work.

Research from Sport England has shown that just under 10 million people across the country have given up their time to support sport and physical activity in the last year.

The bursaries can be put towards a qualification that is level 2 or below, excluding first aid, safeguarding or renewal qualifications. Priority will be given to coaches supporting activity in the Foundation’s focus communities.

Applications will remain open until all the funding has been allocated, and no later than 5pm on Thursday 30 September.  Applicants must be aged 16 or over and proof of a course booking will be required for the funding to be released. The course booking can be made after submission of the application.

To apply, complete this online form. We will respond to applicants within two working weeks.
