The Duke & Duchess of Sussex attend The Coach Core Awards At Loughborough University

Today, Harry and Meghan were at Loughbourough University to attend the very first Coach Core Awards. They were joined by athlete Paula Radcliffe as well as tennis player Laura Robson and English netballer Eboni Beckford-Chambers.

What exactly is Coach Core? The programme was created in 2012, with TRH The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry within The Royal Foundation.

Coach Core is an apprenticeship programme that helps young people (16-24 years old) who are not in education, employment or training to build a career.

Motivated by the success and impact of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Their Royal Highnesses
understood the power and impact sport can have on people – especially young people. With this in mind they sought to develop a new programme using sport to help improve life chances.

Each site where Coach Core operates targets those most in need. While some areas may have pockets of affluence, they also have some of the highest levels of youth unemployment and social deprivation.

By bringing together professional clubs, key sporting organisations and multiple businesses that provide employment places and create opportunities, Coach Core is producing well-rounded sports professionals and role models for children in their communities.
