Do you want to develop your journey in athletics?

Could you pass on your expertise and passion to others?

Why not consider becoming a jog leader or athletics coach, or improve your skills with further training?

Our coach education programme for spring 2023 has plenty of opportunities to take your first steps or move along the coaching pathway.

Coach education co-ordinator Alison Grey said: ‘We try to provide as wide a range of courses as possible, across the types of qualification and geographical locations available.

‘We really hope that lots of people will consider learning with us in 2023 and add to the fantastic pool of leaders and coaches we already have in the scottishathletics community.

‘There are courses coming soon – in February and March – for the Leadership in Running Fitness and Coach in Running Fitness qualifications that we would love to see a few more sign-ups for, please.’
