Get Fishing Event Support Volunteer

Please note that the new courses will be rolled out towards the end of May so do keep checking the webpage to book a place! 

At the moment you can’t book spaces very far in advance, but when there are new events available there will be opportunities to self-book via our website facility.

This is the entry point for anyone new to the world of coaching.  Whether you are young or old, if you have limited knowledge of coaching or want to provide more support to your club or fishery, then this is the course for you.  You must however hold a basic level of angling knowledge and skill in your preferred angling discipline: these courses are not designed to teach you how to fish.

The Event Support Volunteer Award course is designed to support those who wish to offer voluntary help at Get Fishing Award events and provides an introduction to step into coaching.

The first 100 places booked for this course are free of charge as they are supported by funding from Environment Agency rod licence income which is being reinvested to develop new anglers.  After the first 100 places have been claimed it will be a chargeable course, and this cost is TBC.

When we have schedules, the details will appear on the main coaching webpage within the “Get Involved” section, but until then it won’t be possible to book places.

Duration of the course will be three hours; it will be delivered in an online classroom format and will cover the following:

  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Understanding risk assessments and managing health and safety
  • Working as part of a team
  • Understanding the Get Fishing campaign and supporting interventions
  • Practical coaching skills including: activating, delivering and reviewing sessions; how to instruct and explain; how to demonstrate; how to give praise; how to use open questions to support learning; how to keep young people safe; identifying types of abuse and how to report concerns
