Pass on Your Passion is a campaign which celebrates the brilliant female coaches we already have within our area and asks them to “pass on their passion” for coaching to the next generation. In this case, the term ‘coach’ is used in its widest sense to include instructors, activators, motivators.
Following a pilot delivered by Greater Sport in Manchester 2017, the active partnerships in the North adopted the campaign, taking it across the whole of the Northern region.

The impact that physical activity and sport can have on an individual can be transformative.
Increasingly now, physical activity and sport is being used as a vehicle for empowerment. Whilst there will always be a core of enthusiasts who enjoy sport for sport sake, there are many more that are quite happy to take part in more informal sessions, preferring to reap the vast range of soft skills that come from getting active beyond the physical and mental wellbeing benefits that are widely known.
Whether people are actively taking part or providing volunteering support, people’s confidence and self-esteem stand to benefit as well as their leadership skills and teamwork capabilities1.
