We were on a mission to celebrate the great success of local female coaches in sport, within Tyne & Wear with a campaign called #PassOnYourPassion, for all Northern CSP's. Read the information below to get an insight into to what we did and click on the case studies to read up on each coach's story.


Tyne & Wear Sport embarked on a campaign called Pass On Your Passion which recognised great coaches in the sub-region and encouraged more women into coaching. #PassOnYourPassion took place across the whole of the North of England and highlighted the hard work and dedication of our female coaches, and the positive impact they have had on the people they coach.

Currently only 30% of the coaching workforce are women and the percentage of women coaches receiving a qualification each year is 17%. To improve these statistics, we believed we could begin to do this by delivering upon the #PassOnYourPassion campaign. 

The campaign involved 12 County Sports Partnerships in the North of England each dedicated a week to raising the profile of women in coaching. 

Please click on the pictures below to read about some of our amazing female coaches that have demonstrated just how passionate they are about what they do. 

To add to the campaigns' success...

Tyne & Wear Sport won an award at the County Sport Partnership Convention, for best collaboration with all northern CSP's, by working together to make the Pass On Your Passion coaching campaign.
