University of Portsmouth Coaches



Our UP for Sport coaches are students here at the University, they are from all year groups and study a variety of under-graduate courses. Our paid Lead Coaches are experienced and qualified in their sport, often working during PPA times to deliver sessions at infant, junior and secondary schools.

If you’re looking for some support during your PE lessons and after-school clubs, our volunteer Assistant Coaches are perfect for this. They often have little experience in coaching, but are passionate about their sport, wanting to learn from teachers and more experienced coaches. All of our Lead and Assistant Coaches are fully insured and DBS checked through the University.

Our coaches are qualified in a range of sports which include:

  • Football
  • TAG Rugby
  • Netball
  • Hockey
  • Cheerleading
  • Street Dance
  • Officials for football, netball and rugby

If you have any requests for a sport/activity that isn’t on the above list, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Send an email to or give us a call on 02392 843542
