#PassOnYourPassion Collage

#PassOnYourPassion is a massive celebration of female coaches which took place across 13 counties in the North of England in the summer of 2017, with the week long campaign happening in Northumberland during the week commencing 26th June 2017.

All our nominated coaches received a baton, for them to #PassOnYourPassion to someone they would like to inspire into coaching, as well as goodies and a certificate for themselves.  During the week long campaign in Northumberland we visited just some of our nominees to hear about how they got into coaching and what inspires them to coach.  Visit our YouTube channel to watch the videos from our visit.
