Scottish Coaches Receive £100k of Coaching Resources – Free

Resources worth £100,000 have been provided to 250 Scottish coaches engaged in the national coach development programme.

Those coaches attending the October and December national Event Group Development Days will benefit from a free license to the Movement Dynamic online resources, courtesy of scottishathletics and Kelvin Giles.

The licenses form part of the resources being developed around the national coaching syllabus, which is adopting the best practices and latest coaching techniques and is a blueprint to develop Scottish athletes to a higher level.

The syllabus outlines clear physical competencies (general and event specific) and technical competencies required for each stage of the athlete pathway along with any relevant performance indicators.
