Following advice from the UK & Scottish Governments, scottishathletics recommend all face-to-face classroom education activity delivered by scottishathletics (coach, official, teacher, club etc) will only be able to proceed while the country is in Coronavirus (COVID-19) protection levels 0-2.  Meantime we will look to transition courses where applicable online.

We are aware that there is an increased use of online communication during this period, and so have provided the following useful documents for coaches:

Coaches are vital to our sport. Without the commitment of those who choose to guide and train athletes of all ages, abilities and disciplines, athletics simply would not exist.

The backbone of the coach’s journey is formed by the UKA qualifications that we offer around the country. Courses are available for everyone from complete beginners (such as the Leadership in Running Fitness (Jog Leader) or Leading Athletics courses) to the most experienced.
