Following on from our popular ‘Preparing Athletes for a return to Training’ webinar, scottishathletics are pleased to announce a further coach development session.

This time we are delighted to be joined by guest speaker Jen Savage, Lead Performance Psychologist with British Athletics, alongside our own Director of Performance and Coaching, Stephen Maguire, and other members of the scottishathletics team.

We’re inviting coaches and clubs to ask their representatives to sign-up for the session on Tuesday 28 July from 6pm to 7.30pm.

The online session, which will be conducted via Zoom meetings, will explore the following points:

*What does a typical route to success look like?

*What type of challenges do athletes usually report?

*Skills to help athletes navigate their development pathway.

*The role of challenge in an athletes pathway.

*How can we support positive progress and retention on the pathway?

This webinar is aimed at coaches working at any stage on the pathway and anyone with a responsibility for coaching in the club.

The webinar will start at 6pm and finish no later than 7.30pm. The second half of the session will give attendees the chance to ask questions to our panel.

As this is a Zoom online session, we cannot share the link for reasons of confidentiality. Contact your club secretary or club coaching lead to ask for the link. Thanks.

Jen Savage
