As many athletes settle in to a well-deserved break after a hard season, spare a thought for your club coaches, who are committing a massive amount of time and energy into their continued professional development.
Tracey & Ian have been successful in applying for this year’s Level 3 coaching course, which starts in January. They had to assemble a substantial portfolio of coaching logs in all the triathlon disciplines, as well as committing to a gruelling course schedule that includes 5 weekends of residential courses at Loughborough University.
Jock & Jane have started their Level 2 course, which consists of 3 weekends at Hexham plus 40 hours of homework and coaching practice. They are now qualified to write and deliver a progressive series of coached sessions.
Andy has started his Level 1 course, which will give him a formal triathlon qualification to match his extensive swimming experience.
