The club is keen to help develop our existing coaches and encourage more of our members and parents to take up coaching given the rate of growth the club is enjoying. You do not need to have any previous running or coaching experience, the instructors are very supportive and understanding. The club's other coaches will support you and don't worry you will not be forced to take on your own group unless you want to of course. You can assist an existing coach and then, if you wish, you can coach your own group. The dates and venues of the courses are:
Priory Community Sports Centre, Fawcett Road, Portsmouth, PO4 0DL
Winchester Sports Stadium, Milland Road, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 0QA
11th and 12th May and 29 June.
Venue: Winchester Sports Stadium, Milland Road, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 0QA
The course detail may be found on the England Athletics website:
The club will fund the courses subject to the attached training contract. Delegates should apply direct and inform Will Harding and John O'Shea of their attendance. If anyone wants to know more about the courses they can contact me direct or catch me at the track on a Tuesday or Thursday.
If you have any questions about training to become a coach, please get in touch with John O'Shea.
