Coaches

Coaching, individual and group is offered to all club members. A network of coaches and interested parties provide coaching and instruction at all club training nights. The majority of coaches are BAF qualified.

The club recognises the importance of the coaching structure whereby all athletes are able to progress smoothly by having well qualified coaches at all age levels.

Note: All of our coaches are UK Athletics Qualified

*Please note that the old UKA Coaching Courses (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 & Level 4) were run until April 2010 when they were replaced by a new system structure. Existing Level awards still apply.
