Inverness: strong on throws


Good to see various coaching teams at clubs enjoying event group success like Kilbarchan AAC at U17 Endurance; Whitemoss AC at U15 Jumps; Moray Road Runners at U20 Throws and Inverness Harriers at U17 Throws.

These clubs and others will now be the recipients of a unique coach development opportunity for a coach working with that respective age group and that event group within the club.

The specific opportunity will depend upon the experience and development requirements for that individual coach, and suitable opportunities being available.

For example, this may take the form of support to a European event/event group conference, a British Athletics coaching weekend, or financial support towards coach education amongst other areas. The support will be agreed with the scottishathletics Director of Coaching in due course.

Congratulations to those clubs involved in high place finishes across the various Event Group sections at Seniors and Age Groups Champs.
