Coaches and volunteers in Derbyshire

An army of coaches, volunteers and officials make sport and physical activity tick along successfully across Derbyshire.

Taking the lead

While there's often no shortage of those wanting to take part, just as important are the host of people who devote their time to teaching, leading and organising the sport and physical activity that takes place across Derbyshire.

For those wanting to get into coaching, attend a new course, access funding or search for new ideas, Coaching Derbyshire can help provide the answers.

Opportunity knocks

Just as important can access grants and bursaries to complete projects or facilitate taking part in competition and our funding section summarises what you need to know.

You can also volunteer to support the delivery of a sport or physical activity and find information on best practice and access a support network for clubs and groups.

Using this section

Use our step by step guide to make the most from this section and find out how to register yourself, your club or group and it's sessions along with any volunteering opportunities that are available.
