The club is in need of more qualified coaches as we have lost three in the last year. If we are to continue in our present form we must find more. At present we have very few coaches to cover field events. This may seem a daunting task but you learn the event from mentors and develop this as the athlete develops. This might mean a commitment of once a week or even once a fortnight, but that would be better than what we had available this summer.
The first stage is to attend a two day course one weekend to gain your assistant club coach qualification. This is not assessed. There are two opportunities available before Christmas. One is at Lynn Sports, Kings Lynn on the 3rd and 4th of November, the closing closing date for application is 19th Oct. The other one is at Bury St Edmunds on the 8th and 9th of December, closing date 23rd Nov. You can view these and find out more on www.englandathletics .co.uk. under coaching. The club will pay all the costs for the course and travelling in advance if needed. Unfortunately because of the new system you can only enter on line yourself, I am unable to do it for you. If you are interested please contact Alan Jones.
