School Sport Coaching

Are you looking to access Sports Coaching in your school?

At Active Lincolnshire we are continually looking to improve the standard of coaching being offered to schools in Lincolnshire.  We have developed the Active Lincolnshire Coach & Instructor Network which has a Pro Membership of which is endorsed by Lincolnshire County Council Children Services.

Our Pro Membership gives schools the peace of mind that the coach they employ meets the ‘Minimum Standards for Active Coaches’ provided by sports coach UK. Click here to view sports coach UK’s advice on minimum standards for active coaches.

All coaches with a Pro Membership meet the following:
  • Fully DBS Checked (previously Enhanced CRB)
  • Minimum Level 2 Qualification (National Governing Body or Fitness related) in the sport they are coaching or hold Qualified Teacher Status with sport specific delivery experience
  • Public Liability insurance
  • Safeguarding training certificate

These qualifications are regularly checked and monitored by our Workforce Manger.
