Sports Leaders UK work in conjunction with a number of National Governing Bodies to develop sport specific nationally recognised awards.
These awards, aimed at young people wishing to develop their leadership skills in particular sports or adults who want to get involved in volunteering, are seen as the first step on the coaching ladder.
The awards are comprised of two standardised modules which develop communication and leadership skills, as well as a sport specific module which include leading skill acquisition, roles and responsibilities within the sport, general rules, health and safety requirements.
Recommended age: 13 and over
Course length: 3-6 hours
