(Updated April 2014)

From April 2014 West Yorkshire Sport is changing how it supports organisation to qualify the workforce they need to increase participation in sport.  

Details of our new Recruit into Coaching programme will be available shortly.

As a result our NGB Coach Bursary, Change4Life Coach Bursary and Inclusive Coach bursary schemes are no longer available.


The following bursary scheme remains open for applications:

WY Running Bursary

This bursary is specifically to support an increase in participation in running so will only fund people to gain the England Athletics Leader in Running Fitness (LiRF) and Coach in Running Fitness (CiRF) qualifications.

Funding is available for up to 50% of the LiRF qualification and up to 75% of the cost of the CiRF qualification.

For further information please read the full details of the Running Bursary before applying to the bursary scheme.
