There are scottishathletics Coaching Roadshows currently taking place to give coaches a better understanding of the National Coach Development Programme.
And we also have Technical Development days coming up across the various event groups which are geared to building knowledge and experience.
Grangemouth is the venue for all of these sessions on the weekend of November 21/22 and we are taking sign-ups to these at the moment.
The workshops are specifically designed for anyone who has completed the Coaching Assistant Award (or previous Level 1 course) or for those working towards or have completed the Athletics Coach Award (or previous Level 2 courses), who are looking for an introduction to coaching the events.
The dates, venues and for each of the Technical Development I workshops are as follows:
Saturday 21 November: Grangemouth
Sprints and Hurdles; Throws
Sunday 22 November: Grangemouth
The technical workshops costs £20 per day for scottishathletics Coach Members.
The indoor season is almost upon as winter takes hold and one of the first meetings is coming up later this month in North Lanarkshire.
Ravenscraig is the venue on Wednesday 25 November for their first Open Graded of the 2015-16 season, with the cost being £3 per event.
