West Yorkshire Sport Bursary Schemes 

WY Sport’s Recruit into Coaching programme is a targeted scheme for National Governing Bodies to develop their coaching workforce to increase participation in line with their NGB Whole Sport Plan. This can assist by recruiting, training and deploying coaches to meet need identified by NGBs to deliver new activity, with coaches delivering a number of voluntary hours in return for funding towards their coaching course. Details of the scheme.
