Vital for sports development

Coach education

Coach education

The role of the coach at all levels of sport is crucial, regardless of what age and stage you coach. Coaches and volunteers play a vital role in community sport across the Scottish Borders. Without the time, energy and commitment of dedicated coaches and volunteers, many clubs and coaching sessions would not be able to run.

For sport, specific courses please contact the relevant Sport Development Officer.

Coaching Courses

We offer a number of sports-specific Coach Education Courses and Coach Development Workshops to help coaches develop. Please see Coaching Courses for more information or Contact Lori Lee :llee@liveborders.org.uk

The courses we currently offer are:

– RLSS Emergency First Aid at Work
– Safeguarding and Protecting Children Workshop

Coaching and volunteering.

Volunteering can be a rewarding activity which helps you to meet new people and take on new challenges through roles such as coaching or administration.

Without volunteers, many people would not have access to sports and physical activates, they are an integral part of sport in the Borders.

If you interested on becoming a volunteer with sports clubs or with Live Borders or if you are a club looking for more information on recruiting and sustain volunteers please get in contact with our Club Development Officer Greig Shortreidgshortreed@liveborders.org.uk

Coaching Support

The Coach Scholarship Scheme offers financial support to coaches/officials within the Scottish Borders. It has been introduced to encourage new people to get involved in coaching and officiating, as well as motivating existing coaches to progress their careers by awarding financial support.
