Rhondda Netball recognises the importance of developing community leaders and role models to create a big-hearted “giving back” culture, but also to make sure the the initiative is sustainable from a leadership perspective.
Our Community Coach & Role Model Development programme enables
young women to gain the following:
1. UKCC Level 1/2 Netball Coaching Qualification
2. First Aid At Work Qualification
3. Safeguarding Children & Young People Level 2
4. Leadership Training and Experience
5. Coaching & Leadership Training
6. Photographic evidence of community-focused work
7. Experience working in sport
After fundraising, developing people is the next toughest challenge and that’s why so much of our attention is on this programme. Research shows that female initiatives are often at a disadvantage to male initiatives, with life changes such as marriage, work and children often leading women to give up certain commitments. It means there is constant pressure on female provision to to replace leaders, helpers and volunteers; Rhondda Netball is trying to stay ahead of this curve whilst equipping and empowering the next generation.
With 28 community coaches & role models, helpers and volunteers supporting Rhondda Netball’s extensive provision across the Valleys, we’re delighted with the way Rhondda Netball has been able to inspire and develop support from
female leaders in the community!
