Coaches shortlisted for major award
Rick Simpson, of Quest Taekwondo in Bradford and Keighley, and Paul Jubb, representing Bradford City Disability Football Club, are in line to win the Coaching West Yorkshire Coach of the Year Award.
West Yorkshire Sport named the pair on their inaugural shortlist for the prize, which looks to recognise coaching skills, enthusiasm and dedication of the many coaches in the county who make a massive contribution to grass-roots sport.
Simpson works with all levels of participants, introducing young people into taekwondo and developing them to the highest levels – including coaching three athletes to the Great Britain junior development squad and two to national junior titles.
Head coach Jubb runs coaching for both disabled children and adults, developing their skills on the pitch and fostering a love of soccer.
Through his coaching and support for the club, he also ensures participants develop their personal and social skills as well as their independence.
The winner will be announced later this month.
