Coach and Volunteering Academy

Action works with the Coaching and Volunteering Academy to provide the opportunity for volunteers to go into local schools, colleges and sports clubs to coach their preferred sport. This is a great way of gaining some valuable experience for the future and you can also work to gain some coaching qualifications and various others through the programmes that the CVA offers.

There are a number of areas in which you can get involved, depending on the route you would like to take and the experience you want to gain. These areas include:


  • Performance & Development 
  • Reacreation & Participation
  • Schools & Community


  • Events Managment
  • Media and Marketing
  • Performance Analysis
  • Gym Instructing
  • Sports Development
