The changes in the new articles and compliance with the government’s code will allow NISA to access public funding. This will then support NISA in implementing its ten-year strategy.

Following consultation with members and coaches it became clear that coaches are unhappy with the current coach education provision, which is at present totally funded through coaching and licensing fees. Financial pressures on the Association restricts our ability to subsidise our current training provision. Access to public funding, if obtained, will enable NISA to improve the current training and resources we have on offer and at a reduced cost.

We are fully committed to improving coach education and will consult widely with the coaching community on the future provision of coach education. The new Articles of Association will allow the following key benefits:

  • You will have greater opportunity of representation on the board. The new articles will allow you to apply to represent all electedpositions.
  • Increased ability for you to advise and influence decision making on the future provision of coach education.
  • A technical committee for coaching.
  • Improved, affordable training and CPD opportunities tailored to the different needs of your skaters, from beginners to elite level.
  • More opportunities for you to network and learn from each other.

The new Articles of Association do more than bring us into compliancy with the Government’s new Governance Sport Code. They will offer a wealth of benefits to different groups across the whole sport. Here’s how the changes will positively affect clubs:

  • Ability to support, develop, engage and expand ice rinks throughout the UK
  • Higher profile of the sport locally, nationally and internationally
  • Ability to increase participation in the sport, particularly amongst young people
  • Ability to deliver against Sport England agenda, particularly increasing participation amongst females in their teenage years, families and those from disadvantaged backgrounds
  • Support to help you better engage with your ice rink and local network i.e. Local Authorities, colleges and Universities, thereby increasing your ability to access local funding and new customers and create a higher profile.
