On completion of the course, there will then be an opportunity to volunteer in kids' programmes that run at Trinity Sport. Our youth coaches will be paired up with experienced sports leaders and work alongside them in a variety of sports. There will be an opportunity to lead sports sessions, work with the children, and feedback on their experiences upon completion.

At this point, we will be able to assess the next steps for participants and there will be an opportunity for paid casual work. There will also be the chance to add further training and course across the 2022/2023 academic year with partner national governing bodies providing level 1 courses to enhance our future coaching stars' CVs.
