The campaign aims to recognise, reward and raise the profile of female coaches, leaders and volunteers for passing on their passion of sport and physical activity to inspire and motivate people of all ages and all abilities to get active and also take their first steps on their coaching journey.
#PassOnYourPassion is campaign to raise the profile of local female coaches, leaders and volunteers taking place across 13 counties in the North of England this summer with the week long campaign taking place in the Tees Valley from Monday 14th October 2019.
During the #PassOnYourPassion week in Tees Valley you can expect to see the following:
We are looking for female coaches, leaders and volunteers in the Tees Valley who deserve to be recognised and rewarded for their time and dedication in inspiring others to get involved in sport and physical activity. The selected nominee’s will be invited to a special awards evening as well as receiving exclusive goodies.
We need your help to identify female coaches, leaders and volunteers in the Tees Valley who are fantastic at motivating and inspiring people of all ages and all abilities to get active. It doesn’t matter how long they have been coaching for and whether they are coaching elite athletes or new mothers at a grassroots level as long as they are passionate about what they do.
Those nominated will receive a range of goodies and will be invited to a special awards dinner being held at Middlesbrough College on Wednesday 16th October 2019.
You can nominate yourself or nominate someone you think is suitable by completing the simple nomination form below. Closing date is Friday 27th September 2019.

A few of our local coaches who have been involved in our past campaign tell us why they pass on their passion:
We are delighted at the response to our Pass on Your Passion Project that aims to recognise and reward female coaches, leaders and volunteers as well as encourage more females to become active and become leaders themselves.
64 female coaches, leaders and volunteers of all abilities and all sports were nominated by the community across the Tees Valley for being inspiring females and for their passion to sport and physical activity. These females were all invited to attend a celebration evening at Middlesbrough College which included a 2 course dinner, guests speakers such as Sharon Gayter, Vicky Riley and Yasmin Ellahi as well as a range of goodies that were given to the ladies to say thank you for all their hard work. Please click here to view details of the nominees.
Following Pass on Your Passion we are keen to continue our support of female coaches, leaders and volunteers and we are looking to provide a coach bursary to financially support the training costs for females becoming coaches and leaders. Following feedback from our nominees we are also looking to arrange some informal and fun female networking working events, giving people the opportunity to meet, share skills, knowledge and resources with other female coaches, leaders and volunteers. If you are interested in any finding out more information please contact Victoria Auton, Workforce Development Manager, email@example.com .
We are also keen to collate details of activities that females can get involved in and have started to pull together session details which can be found below:
