Help Develop Young Coaches in Lincoln (4 Sundays from Nov 23rd)

Volunteers are being sought to help run a four-week coaching skills workshop for young people (8-12yrs) in the Monks Road area of the city. Sessions will be held on Sunday afternoons from 2-3.30pm in the Arboretum, starting 23rd November.

Alice Carter – an SDC graduate and current Masters student – will be leading the sessions and she has invited any current School of Sport & Exercise students to join her. The role will involve helping to devise sessions which allow young people to gain some basic coaching/leadership skills and then also helping to deliver them. The commitment is only for four afternoons and it would be an excellent opportunity to work alongside – and learn from – someone whose extensive volunteering experience has been recognised through a number of local and national awards.
