Sign-up for Regional Development Days

scottishathletics are pleased to confirm a series of Regional Development Days coming up over the winter season as part of our wider Event Group Projects.

These coach development opportunities are a central part our Event Group Projects which are looking help:

*put key fundamentals in place

*increase the depth

*improve the retention across all our Event Groups.

The Regional Development Days will be targeted at coaches working at the U15 / U17 level who are interested in progressing their event group knowledge and their awareness of how to apply this within their training environment – as we seek to continue to grow and progress the sport in Scotland.

The RD Days will be held as an ongoing three-part part series across the winter season focussing on the broad themes of planning, technical development and conditioning.

It al starts on the weekend of October 23/24 – with the second and third workshops in the series taking place over further weekends in December and March.

Once coaches have identified their preferred development route for this winter – please confirm this via the google form ‘sign up’ (link can be found on the attachments) for the first workshop of the three part series you are keen to register for.

Registration will remain open until Monday 18 October (at the latest).

However, please sign up as soon as you can as places on each of the RD Days will have a capacity to facilitate their effective delivery and once this capacity is reached we will be close of registration for that specific workshop series.

‘We’re really pleased to announce the next stage of our Event Group Projects which will take place during the winter season,’ said Mark Pollard, Head of Performance.

‘These Regional Development Days are going to be a crucial vehicle for us to engage with our coach members as we look to provide them with practical, accessible workshop opportunities to support their ongoing learning and development – in parallel with their coaching qualification journey.

‘We also hope that the RDD will allow us to maintain and in some cases build new networks of coaches across the different event group areas – facilitating opportunities for our coaches to work together cooperatively in order to help them move their event groups forward in the seasons ahead.’
