Play Your Part: Coaching & Support Pathways

Coaching & Officiating Education:

Team Napier is committed to collaboratively work with club committees to increase the number of trained, active coaches and officials available to and within Team Napier Clubs. ENSA will identify willing individuals to attend relevant sports coaching and officiating courses through the relevant NGB or through other structures i.e. Scottish Student Sport. Where appropriate, this fund will also consider Health and Safety courses that are required for adventure sports.

The outcome ENSA hopes to achieve through this fund is:

  • Increased number of coaches and officials in Team Napier;
  • Develop Team Napier members as coaches, officials, health and safety officers to benefit the clubs of Team Napier and potentially the wider community.
  • Create or source and advertise opportunities for students to use their new skills post course.
  • Decrease the financial burden of officials and coaching by having a pool of student volunteers trained in such areas.
  • External coaches within clubs will act as mentors to student coaches to help to enhance development and confidence.
