New resources for local sports clubs

SPORTS coaches and volunteers now have greater access to a range of resources in the coaching section at Lincolnshire’s libraries.

New books have been added which are freely available to sports clubs, organisations and individuals to borrow.

The books remain at Lincoln Central Library but can be transported to any library within the county on request.

Lizzie Couling, Workforce Development Manager at Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, said: “Resources can be costly so the coaching collection enables clubs and individuals to borrow the books and resources for free from any library in the county.

“In conjunction with our new volunteer programme, Sport Makers, the resources are a great tool to engage new volunteers with your club.”

Books recently added to the collection include Running Sports ‘Recruiting volunteers from outside your club’, Running Sports Top Tips, Running Sports ‘Valuing your Volunteers’ and Running Sports ‘Managing People’.

Lincolnshire Sports Partnership has recently launched a new volunteer programme called Sport Makers which aims to train 548 new sports volunteers in Lincolnshire over the next two years. It is hoped that the resources will help clubs and volunteers with the programme.
