Sports Coaching & Officiating

Sports Coaching Courses

The University hosts a range of sports coaching and officiating opportunities which are popular with those who have an interest in sport or are wishing to pursue a sports coaching or officiating career. They are also especially popular with students on teacher, Physical Education & Physical Activity, and sports related courses. Additionally, we welcome our local community too.

Anyone can get involved in sports coaching and officiating. There are many benefits including physical and mental wellbeing, personal development, as well as social interaction. Additionally you will be helping to inspire our students to become involved in a range of sports and activities at the University.

People who are coached are more likely to be physically active and lead healthier lifestyles, suggests the Active People Survey: 2006 – 2016 UK coaching 2017.

We encourage students to attend the courses and then put their knowledge and expertise to use by leading, coaching or officiating at one of our many University sporting clubs or in the local community. Many of the courses are also a pre-requisite for taking further and higher levels of coaching and officiating awards.
