The scottishathletics Coaching Conference for 2016 attracted a top class line-up to the Emirates Arena last month.
And we’ve been delighted with the feed-back we received from the 200 coaches, staff and presenters who were in attendance.
Now there is an opportunity to listen in on the final Q and A Session of the Coaching Weekend, which took place on the Sunday afternoon at the Emirates.
Martin Bingisser and Vern Gambetta have created the material and feature on the Web Cast from the HMMR website, and we are pleased to take the opportunity to share that with a wider audience.
scottishathletics Performance Manager Darren Ritchie put together the Conference line-up and, in addition to Martin and Vern, hear from the following coaches:
