(2) Officiating Bursaries: open to anyone who is interested in obtaining officiating qualifications. Deadline: September 30th 2015.
(3) HE/FE Coaching Bursaries: open to students who are interested in getting started with coaching. Applications open on October 1st 2015 and close on November 2nd 2015.
(2) Talented Coaches Scheme: receive extensive training, support and networking to help you develop your coaching experience and skills. many of these events are hosted within our School – as you can see from the photo here – and we had a student in the 2015 cohort.

There are many more resources available on the Lincolnshire Sport website, and we strongly recommend that everyone takes a few minutes to explore the site.
