30.Jul.12 North East LCDP programme announced
Following the success of last year’s programme of LCDP workshops, and based on the feedback from coaches in the region, England Athletics is delighted to announce the latest instalment of LCDP events for the North East. A lot of effort has gone into creating a programme of workshops that covers all event groups and tackles the issues most relevant for coaches at a local level. Through attracting some of the most respected coaches and coach educators in the country, this winter promises to give coaches in the North East more opportunities to develop and learn than ever before.
Local CCSOs John Stacey and Nick Ridgeon are both looking forward to what should be a great winter for coach development in the region. John said of the programme, "I’m really pleased with the events we have been able to pull together for the coming winter, and the quality of speakers that have already been secured to share their expertise with our local coaches is a great advert for the LCDP, shows that people are really seeing the benefits of these kind of events and want to be a part of it."
After his first experience of planning a winter programme after becoming CCSO for Tyne & Wear and Cumbria in February, Nick said, "I’ve been to LCDP events in the past as a coach and always found myself picking up something new, but being on the other side of the fence has shown me just how much work goes into making each workshop happen, and I’m excited about the positive experiences I’m now able to pass on to local coaches through the high quality events we are able to offer this winter."
Information about each of the events including workshop times, target audience and more detailed session content will be published nearer the time. All workshops are free to attend, but coaches must book in advance to secure a place. You can download the draft programme from the very bottom of this page.
