Getting involved in coaching is a great way to help your community, meet people, and have fun!

There is a range of schemes to support coach development; contact the Integrated Youth Service for advice about the best scheme for you.

Get Qualified

The Get Qualified scheme is for volunteer coaches to develop their skills and gain qualifications.

The qualifications apply to a wide range of sports and could assist with funding for Sports Coach UK (UKCC) Levels 1, 2 and 3 qualifications.

Recruit into Coaching

The Recruit into Coaching scheme helps new coaches to get into coaching and leadership within community settings.

Funding is available to stimulate, recruit, develop, deploy and retain new coaches.

The programme gives the opportunity for new volunteers to become qualified up to and including UKCC Level 1.

Community Coaches

The Community Coach scheme is about developing a national structure for coaching and increasing the number of qualified coaches and volunteers.

The aim of the Community Sports Coaches in Oldham is to increase the number of young people participating in sport and physical activity within school and in the community.

Currently Oldham has Community Coaches in:

  • Netball
  • Athletics
  • Dance and Movement
  • Cricket

The Community Coaches get involved in all kinds of activities with young people, including: in-school coaching, young leaders training, holiday camps, festivals and competitions, teacher inset days, skills training, work with under represented groups, volunteer development, mentoring, and more!
