50 Youth Sport Trust Young Coach Academies have been developed across the country through the network of Youth Sport Trust Leadership, Coaching and Volunteering Lead Schools.
Based on the experience of the National Young Coach Academy, the academies have been established to create a clearer pathway between the development of young coaches in schools to the community setting.
A training package of support is delivered to add value to National Governing Body qualifications, with particular focus on understanding and developing a coaching philosophy, as well as considering honesty and ethics when delivering sport.
There is an expectation that the young coach will be provided a mentor, to support both their sporting expertise as well as providing advice and guidance to develop their 'coach behaviour'.
