What is Coach Core?

Targeting 16-24 year olds who traditionally may experience barriers, discrimination, and lack of opportunities. Coach Core delivers an inclusive and impactful sports coaching apprenticeship that develops the talents of young people and provides them with a range of vital skills for sport, work and life.

Coach Core, created by The Royal Foundation in 2012 as part of the Olympic Legacy, aims to create inspirational sports coaches to deliver sport in the community, particularly in communities that have traditionally had poor access to high quality, professional coaching.

Coach Core Sussex

Coach Core is about changing the lives of young people through an innovative and engaging sports coaching apprenticeship. By harnessing a number of qualifications, experiences and additional learning opportunities, the goal is to ensure each apprentice goes onto further education or employment and provides greater coaching provision in the communities in which they serve. The Coach Core model ensures that apprentices, employers and the local community all benefit from the project and all for the long term!
