UK Coaching has launched a new initiative — ReTrain to ReTain — to provide skills, training and support to volunteer sports coaches including BSAC Branch Officers and instructors.

As part of their Great Coaching Comeback campaign, this new UK Coaching initiative has been launched funded by Sport England. The fully-funded scheme aims to provide skills, training and targeted support for 25,000 volunteer coaches who have been negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please note: as this is funded by Sport England, the initiative is currently only open to clubs based in England.

Support available to Branch Officers and instructors

  • Mental Health Awareness for Sport & Physical Activity+ eLearning
