Our National Coaching Conference is fast approaching at the Emirates Arena next weekend – but there is still time to sign-up.

Over 150 Scottish coaches have already put themselves forward to attend on September 24/25 as we seek to build knowledge with the benefit of the experience of world class presenters.

The Coaching Conference forms a key part of the National Coach Development Programme and features practical sessions, seminars, and workshops led by international and expert coaches. If you are a club coach, development coach, performance coach, or a coach working with disability athletes, then Conference has something to offer you.
