Local sports coaches are invited to learn about mental health and wellbeing in sport and physical activity, in the latest event from Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire’s new Coaching Academy, run in partnership with the University of Worcester.
The event will take place on Tuesday 4th April from 5.30pm – 8pm, at the University of Worcester Arena, with light refreshments available.
This event will feature a panel of sporting experts, including Paul Smith, ex professional cricketer, coach and author; Marieanne Spacey-Cale, English former international women’s footballer and currently head of girl’s and women’s football at Southampton FC and Head coach of Southampton FC Women; and Stew Kingscott, producer of BBC Hereford and Worcester’s podcast series on men’s mental health and wellbeing.
Bronwyn Stubbings, Project Officer at Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire, said: “This event will provide a great opportunity for coaches, volunteers, organisations and anyone interested in this subject to hear from three great panellists and network with local, clubs and coaches. We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting event.”
The new Coaching Academy was developed to support local sports coaches and volunteers, providing opportunities for the sports workforce from different sporting disciplines to take part in workshops on a host of different topics, as well as to network and share best practice with others from across the region.
The Academy will host workshops and conferences as well as provide online resources, such as podcasts, to support the workforce on a host of topics, from engagement of new members to securing funding.
