"Coach My Sport have had a great working relationship with the Sport unit at the University of Stirling. Coach My Sport delivers a coaching program for children aged 2 - 11 plus sport specific activities like dodgeball and floorball. The students have helped deliver our coaching program and also helped with both Summer and Easter Camps. They have totally embraced what we are looking to achieve, they have been dedicated, efficient with their time keeping, added to the activities and delivered by making suggestions which were taken on board. They added real value as each student brings different qualities, experiences which is brilliant for the dynamics of the business, and it also keeps my own full-time coaches on their toes. What was encouraging is that each student got involved immediately with the activities which put the children and parents at ease especially when we were coaching toddlers and preschool children."

"Ollie worked with us to develop a robust method so that this project can continue over a number of years. With his experience of being on the committee of the University Rugby Club, he piloted this research on his teammates through surveys and focus groups. Ollie’s research included measurement tools for employability, mental health and wellbeing, and recommendations for future students to continue this project. We would highly recommend these placement opportunities to other employers, so that students can apply their learning in a practical setting, and to offer employers like us support on long term projects."
