Lincolnshire Sport have launched their Talented Coaches Scheme, which looks to support coaches through a tailored support programme and informative, needs-led personal development workshops.

Coaches will be supported over a twelve month period to develop knowledge, experience and skills specific to their current roles and in support of future coaching goals.

There will be a core programme of workshops and training delivered by expert tutors and coaches from different sporting organisations around the county.

Coaches will also have the opportunity to pair with a mentor and potentially view live coaching sessions. Through the programme coaches will also have the opportunity to be supported towards their next level of coaching qualification.

For more details about the scheme, eligibility criteria and how to apply, please go to the scheme website:

The closing date for applications is Monday, 16th February 2015.

Please note: the first workshop will be held on 2nd March at University of Lincoln and candidates must be available to attend.

Caythorpe Cricket Club (in between Grantham and Lincoln) would like to recruit some volunteers to help with the running of their U11 team. They are looking for two Level 1 coaches who will be supervised by a Level 2 Coach, who will always be on site.  They are also looking for someone to design a web site for the team.

Winter training will start at the end of March at Northgate Sports Hall, and the club itself is based at Caythorpe (near RAF Cranwell).  The U11 team plays in the Lincolnshire League and the club anticipate having 15 – 20 players this year.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain mentored coaching experience at a well-established club. If you would like to know more, please contact Andy Hibberd at Lincolnshire Cricket.
