Coaches and volunteers play a vital role in creating opportunities for young people to participate in quality extra-curricular sport and community sports clubs. In order to support these volunteers, we have programmed a range of training opportunities. The range of courses will help new and existing volunteers to develop themselves as coaches and help to ensure that young people in North Lanarkshire receive the best possible experience of sport.
