Coaches to the fore for Suffolk Essex Athletics NetworkThe Suffolk Essex Athletics Network has been putting lots of effort into coaching recently.
Level one coaching course
As a result of the coaching course waiting list that has been developed by the network and supported by England Athletics, a level one coaching course was recently hosted by the Suffolk Essex Athletics Network. The level one course, held at Ipswich on Saturday 6th March proved to be a great success with 24 new coaches from across the network attending.
Coach mentoring day
Thirteen coaches from clubs across the network attended a coach development and mentoring day on Sunday 7th March. The workshop supported coaches that would like to provide mentoring for athletes, and also to provide mentoring for other coaches within the network over the coming months. The workshop, led by Les Duggan, provided an excellent networking opportunity for coaches, whilst furthering their knowledge and gaining new ideas that can be used throughout the network.
