Get into coaching

Coaching is an extremely rewarding way to be involved in the fun and exciting world of sport. You don't need to be an amazing player to be an amazing coach - in fact you don't need to have played sport at all!


If you are enthusiastic and want to learn and develop yourself and others, then you can be a coach. Contact Lil Roe ( if you have any queries about how to get into coaching.

It will see 500 female coaches recruited, developed and deployed across the seven South East counties by March 2015.
