Workforce and Clubs

The sport and physical activity workforce which includes coaches, volunteers leaders, activators and officials are the backbone of our work – playing the central role in tackling inactivity and helping ensure millions of people can get active.

Our role as an Active Partnership is the advocacy and embedding of physical activity and the ongoing delivery of an appropriate workforce in the main strategies of key partners, keeping the profile high and developing the conditions for strategic system change.

Coaching and volunteering

Active Dorset recognises the importance of supporting the development of coaches and coaching across the county and currently the coaching provision is being reviewed as part of the national strategy.

Volunteers and coaches play a vital role in community sport all across England and without the time, energy and commitment of these people many clubs, team sport sessions and coaching sessions would not be able to run.

In short, volunteers and coaches make sport happen. Without this dedicated group of people, who willingly give their time to enable others to play the sport they love, grassroots sport wouldn't exist.

Club Matters

Club Matters, the essential one-stop-shop for sports clubs, will provide you with support, learning and guidance on all aspects of running a club whether it is large, small, formal or informal. Club Matters offers free, simple and bitesize support to all clubs.
