Club Support Services from England Athletics

England Athletics have a dedicated team of Club Support Managers that can provide support and guidance to affiliated Athletics and Running Clubs.

Newquay & Par AC hosted a coaching weekend in September organised by Club Support Manager Rich Ayling. England Athletics want to support clubs and coaches in rural areas, so they arranged for the National Coaching Team to attend the weekend in Cornwall to raise awareness of the importance of physical preparation as part of athlete development.

Information around coaching pathways, road running and volunteering as well as a series of practical sessions providing technical content around physical preparation, running, jumping & throwing were also provided.

Faye Abbiss attended and came away inspired: "I got loads of practical ideas, loads of questions answered, and a much better understanding of ways forward in my coaching journey."
