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.

To add to the campaigns' success...

The Ahead of the Game conference aimed to discuss how sport and physical activity in Tyne & Wear could improve in the future, in order to get more people more active. This event was one of the highlights of the year.
Our Active Workplace programme has gone from strength to strength in recent years, supporting local companies to improve health and wellbeing of their employees.
We have a dedicated team who, with the support of School Games organisers, provide local schools in the Tyne and Wear region with sporting opportunities to compete locally, regionally and nationally.
