Making a difference to YP

It has made me aware of the opportunities
available in sport coaching which has encouraged
me to think further about what I want to achieve
through the academy. Liam It has given me some
good information on coaching and helped my
improvement and future development. Laura The
CYCA has helped me to become more organised and
able to plan different, exciting sessions for
young people. Katie

I have been able to set up my own interform
basketball competition and volunteer even more of
my time for the extra curricular activities at my
school. Amber I have been able to take on
board new tips and ideas to help improve my
coaching sessions. Sunke The CYCA has
provided me with more
confidence in my abilities
and has given me new ideas
which I can use in my coaching
sessions. Ellis
