The scottishathletics National Coaching Conference is looming at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow in just over a fortnight on September 26/27 and there’s a great lineup being assembled for the occasion.

We’ve already outlined a number of speakers and breakout sessions and places for those sessions are already filling up quickly.

Now, fresh from involvement in the 2015 World Championships in Beijing are:

*Neil Black – Performance Director with British Athletics, and head of a Team GB who gathered seven medals in China

*Geoff Wightman – Coach and commentator at the World Championships, who will deliver on endurance running at the Conference

*Mick Woods – Coach to World Championship finalist Steph Twell, who will deliver on endurance running at the Conference

It is going to be a busy weekend at the Emirates on September 26/27 with clubs also urged to make plans to send a representative to the scottishathletics Annual General Meeting.

If you are a club coach, development coach, performance coach, or a coach working with disability athletes, then this conference has something to offer you. For all the information on the conference, please see the conference brochure.
