Course opportunities for Coaches and Officials

Saturday 14th January 2017

Coaching youngsters

Improving the skills of our Coaches and educating our Officials are key principles at scottishathletics.

Indeed, chief executive Mark Munro highlighted both areas as absolutely fundamental for the future of the sport in the current edition of PB magazine (issued to all scottishathletics members in December).

To that end, we’re constantly setting up a schedule of courses for both coaches and for officials in order to broaden knowledge and increase the overall level of expertise in both these vital areas.


It’s never too soon to start (or continue on) your learning journey in coaching and our qualification courses are essential to do that.

We’ve set up a number of opportunities over the first couple of months of 2017 and there are three coming up soon, in fact.

Jog Leader: Saturday 21 January at AAA, Kilmarnock: 17 places left

Athletics Coach: Saturday 21 January at Scotstoun: 12 places left

Jog Leader: Saturday 28 January at Craigswood, Livingston: 20 places left

Check these – and a number of other forthcoming courses – out on the Coaches Qualifications page on this site.
