Endurance GB, the National Governing Body for the sport of Endurance Riding, has launched Coaching For All, a new initiative to attract more coaches into the sport.
Endurance GB members aged 16 and over who are keen to further their own education and that of their fellow members, are encouraged to apply to the scheme where EGB will fund 50% of the cost of a UKCC Level 1 coaching qualification.
Applicants are invited to submit a 500 word personal statement, including details of why they would like to pursue the coaching qualification and what they, as individuals, will be able to contribute to Endurance GB with their qualification. From the applications, five aspiring coaches will be selected by an expert panel to benefit from this unique opportunity.
Nicki Thorne, Chair of Endurance GB, said: “Coaching has welfare at its heart. The greater the education, the better the horse's and rider's well-being. We are passionate about educating and training our riders and horses in Endurance and excited to be able to offer the support to provide future coaches with the best start possible. We are grateful to sponsors, HPower, for their support with this initiative.”
The announcement of the initiative coincides with a celebration of #GreatCoaching, spearheaded by UK Coaching, taking place this week 4th - 10th June. Maintaining their commitment to the education of coaches, later this year EGB will provide further opportunities for existing coaches to be supported in their move up to the next level.
The closing date to apply for the UKCC Level 1 coaching qualification supported by EGB is Friday 1st July; to find out more about the application process visit endurancegb.co.uk.
