Coaching & Clubs

All things coach-related can be found here

Here at Active Norfolk we recognise the importance of supporting coaches and are passionate about providing opportunities and resources to enable our county's coaches to be the best they can possibly be.

Our primary function is to help National Governing Bodies deliver their local coaching objectives in the county, and this is achieved via our coaching delivery plan for which we receive funding for from Sport England.

The main driver of our coaching delivery plan is our programme of coach education, where we deliver a number of projects that recruit new coaches and also develop existing qualified coaches.

As well as the information on this website about coaching opportunities, development and support, we also send quarterly coaching updates to all coaches who register with us. Please register and create a coach profile on our website to be kept up to date with all the latest coaching information. It takes around 5 minutes and is FREE of charge.

Looking for information about NGBs?

National Governing Bodies of sport (NGBs) are the recognised organising bodies for relevant sports. To find out about what each sport is doing nationally and in Norfolk, have a look at the A-Z of sport pages.

Aaron Roberts

Sports Development Officer

I joined Active Norfolk in 2011 working on a temporary basis, lending a hand on various projects. I moved into the Rural Sports Development Officer role working on the Village Games in the same year, before being appointed into my current Sports Development officer role in January 2015.

My current role is made up of two strands: as Lead Coaching Officer I work closely with key partners such as National Governing Bodies, Local Authorities, School Games Organisers, Coaching Providers, Clubs and Coaches to establish local structures to support the delivery of effective coach development. My National Governing Bodies liaison role sees me working closely with the Sports Development Manager to support National Governing Bodies in the delivery of their Whole Sport Plans in Norfolk.

Outside of work most of my spare time is taken up lending my hand to many sports, especially football and cricket.
