FPSG Awards – Coach and Technical Official of Year short-lists

Friday 5th October 2018

Buy Tickets for the FPSG Awards Dinner

The FPSG Awards Dinner is now coming up next month and we are looking forward to a great night in Glasgow.

Dame Kelly Holmes is our Guest of Honour at the Hilton Hotel and tickets are still on sale for Saturday 3 November.

It’s always an exciting evening when we crown the FPSG Athlete of the Year but, just as importantly, recognise outstanding contributions to our sport from clubs, coaches, volunteers and Officials.

Earlier this week we revealed the short-lists in three Club categories as well as the Volunteer of the Year so we now turn the focus to our three Coach of the Year categories as well as the Technical Official of the Year.

scottishathletics received more than 50 submissions from the sport to help us compile these lists and thanks very much for the support!

The Performance Coach of the Year award is selected by a scottishathletics panel in conjunction with the Performance team.

Club Coach of the Year recognises the contribution of the thousands of coaches delivering regular training sessions in our member clubs, while Development Coach of the Year recognises the coach who has had an impact on the development and performances of the athlete (s) they work with.
