NYS Mentors

North Yorkshire Sport have been looking into new ways of supporting our Clubs. To increase our capacity and allow us to work more closely with clubs, we have recruited club mentors from around the county with different specialist areas of expertise. These mentors will mainly be deployed into clubs targeting women and girls and disability although clubs not targeting these groups will still be able to access the mentors. Some of the areas we have found that clubs need help include:

  • Marketing their session/attracting participants
  • Coaching for target groups
  • Attracting volunteers
  • Active sessions
  • Coaching
  • Funding
  • Setting up new club

Benefits for your club

  • Ease the difficulty and costs involved in sending your coaches onto training courses
  • Taps into the expertise of experienced coaches
  • Re-energises coaches
  • Coaches or officials who have been mentored often become mentors and better people managers
  • Encourages coaches to progress to the next level of accreditation through the motivation and assistance they receive from a mentor
  • Mentoring has been recognised as a particularly useful tool to recruit, educate and retain female coaches
  • Increased confidence and motivation
  • Constructive feedback on performance

If you feel your club would benefit from a mentor, or have further questions, please contact Robin Lavin or complete this mentor request form below:
