Let’s Get Sporty is a not for profit social enterprise based in Dumfries & Galloway. We provide young people with training, mentoring and employment opportunities through the delivery of sport & physical activity.
In Dumfries & Galloway youth unemployment levels are high and physical activity levels are low.....this concerns us. We are focused on improving these with innovative, engaging, quality projects throughout the region.
Since we were established in 2012, 96% of our trainees have progressed to a positive destination (either education or employment). In total, our trainees have delivered over 10,000 hours of sport and physical activity throughout the region.
At the heart of Let’s Get Sporty is our trainee academy and an aim of maximising young people’s opportunities to learn and gain experience through the delivery of sport and physical activity.
As a member of the trainee academy, you will not only gain experience in sport coaching, marketing, administration and customer service but also have the opportunity to expand your knowledge through stimulating training exercises. Further opportunities relate to coaching abroad with many of our trainees coaching in U.S.A. On top of this, you will be assigned a mentor who will support you throughout your time on the trainee academy.
