nike & LYG Inclusive coaches project
The LYG Inclusive Coaches Project is an exciting new coaching programme designed to increase the number of young disabled people participating in sport by providing coaches with the confidence and competence to include all young Londoners in their Athletics sessions.
Sport England research shows that disabled people are twice as likely to be inactive as non-disabled people. The LYG Inclusive Coaches Project will provide opportunities for young disabled people to lead more active lives by recruiting and upskilling coaches to be able to deliver inclusive training sessions.
The project is free and open to coaches or PE teachers with relevant qualifications who want to develop their ability to coach inclusively, or aspiring Athletics coaches with experience of working with disabled young people, who still want to obtain their qualifications. Coaches with lived experience of disability or those that have worked with disabled athletes previously are also encouraged to apply.
The coaches selected for the project will benefit from a first-class mentoring programme delivered by an expert Athletics coach with experience of working with young disabled people in London, a British Athletics coaching qualification, and a place on Activity Alliance’s Inclusive Activity Programme.
Successful applicants will commit to coaching alongside their mentor for a minimum of 15 hours and delivering an additional 30 hours of training at a London Athletics club. The project will run from March until July with the aim of coaching young people to compete at LYG Para Games Athletics events and other integrated and inclusive Athletics opportunities. The coaches will begin their training online, in line with the latest government guidance, and will play an important role in bringing young people back to Athletics following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Applications for the LYG Inclusive Coaches Project are now open. Coaches wanting to apply must complete a short application form here explaining why they would like to be selected. The deadline for applications is 26th February. All applicants will be notified about the status of their application by 3rd March. Further information about the project can be found her

YST VIRTUAL AFTER SCHOOL CLUB
The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network, starting on Thursday 12 November with world no.1 female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing.
Aimed mainly at primary-aged children, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club - Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday. The YST hope that this will provide support, capacity and inspiration to the School Games network and sit alongside the other great work and offers that are available for schools and children and young people to engage in. If you are running your own virtual after school clubs, then please do share your practice via #BackToSchoolGames and @greenwichssp.
