We’ve just released our new Impact Report for 2022-23! Take a look here.

Coaches and Volunteers

Developing skills, raising aspirations

Coaches and volunteer skills development is an essential part of supporting an active county. The skills and experience of the sport and physical activity workforce are essential in delivering physical activity in an engaging way. This is true for paid for coaches and volunteers, but also those who work for free.

We want to support Norfolk to have a well-developed physical activity workforce. A workforce that is able and confident to provide varied and appropriate activity opportunities. These opportunities need to appeal to a wide range of audiences. We are especially focussed on those who are new to activity or living with health conditions.

Resources to support the development of coaches and volunteers

In this section we’ve got information to support coach and volunteer development. You’ll find information about Minimum Standards for Coaching. There is also coaching development opportunities, and guidance on developing and delivering safe sports and physical activities in group settings. This information is particularly essential as we emerge from pandemic.

We’ll continue to update this page in line with the latest COVID safety guidance. If you need further support or safeguarding advice during COVID-19, you can check out this page.

Looking for information about NGBs?

National Governing Bodies of sport (NGBs) are the recognised organising bodies for relevant sports.

Sport England has a comprehensive list of all the recognised NGBs with links to their individual websites (you’ll need scroll down the page). There are also bodies for disability sports, which you can find here.

If you are unable to find what you’re looking for, or need advice, be sure to get in touch to see how we can help.
