Village Sports Co-ordinator
Active Norfolk are looking to appoint Village Sport Co-ordinators across the County as part of the Norfolk Village Games project. These posts will receive a £300 yearly payment with a further £200 available for justifiable expenses. There is also the potential for funding to be available to each co-ordinator to work on any agreed project.
Appointed co-ordinators will encourage the development of sport in their village/rural area, a role that will include some of the following activities:
- inspire an entry into your districts Village Games;
- be a focal point for sporting information in the village and a 'Champion for Sport'
- With your Rural Sports Development Officer co-ordinate a Village Come-and-Try or Activity Day to encourage more people to take part in sport and the games itself
Coaching Bursary – we are very keen to develop links with local clubs to offer exit routes from all Village Games events. In addition, in areas where we have established a need, we would be keen to hear from coaches/volunteers who are keen in being involved in starting up a new club.
We are offering to pay up to 75% of the agreed coaching qualification with an understanding that the coach will deliver some coaching as part of the Village Games project.
