Coaching Bursaries


Coaching bursaries can be very useful if you are a grassroots coach wanting to develop you knowledge by taking courses but are only coaching on a voluntary basis. We try our hardest to ensure that any coach will have the chance to apply for a coaching Bursary through ourselves, a club or an external company/ agency. Below is a full list of information for coaches on how to apply for a bursary through us or other places.
