scottishathletics are pleased to confirm plans for the next series of Regional Development Days for coaches.

We continue with an event group approach in that regard and next month will see sessions in the Throws and the Jumps.

The focus of these sessions is to provide practical, accessible workshop opportunities for ongoing learning, building a coach network and supporting coaches to develop their technical and physical literacy of field events.

These Throws and Jumps Sessions are available to all licensed coaches.

If you are interested in joining these sessions, please use the links below to register.
