Coaching webinars

With the current coronavirus movement restrictions in place, we recognise that coaches and leaders will be forced to spend a lot more time at home than usual. Therefore, our Coaching & Athlete Development Team is aiming to provide coaches and leaders with more learning and training opportunities while at home so is developing a regular programme of online coaching webinars hosted by one of our team or lead coaches.

The series of webinars will focus on a range of specific themes and will be free to register. The latest webinars on offer are featured in the below schedule but please check back as details of more webinars will be added over the coming days.

If you have any suggestions of topics that you’d like to see covered in our webinars then please scroll down to submit your ideas via our online form.

Watch Again

We will be uploading the recordings of our webinars into the Coaching Resources section on our Athletics Hub platform so that people can still view the webinar if they’re unable to join us live.  Anyone can sign-up to access Athletics Hub.  The recordings will be added approximately one week after their scheduled live date.  Click here to visit Athletics Hub.
