South East volunteer awards

England Athletics are pleased to announce the winners of the England Athletics South East region Volunteer Awards. The South East region awards presentation evening has not yet taken place, but we will add photos after the event.

Event Group Coach - completing the qualification

The final element of the Event Group Coach qualification is the 'Integration Day', which provides coaches with an opportunity to discuss and debate their coaching ideas, technical observations and principals of planning. Essentially the Integration Day brings to life the theoretical content that is covered in the qualification's online modules. We have opportunities in the coming weeks for people to complete their integration days.

Marathon programme - new opportunities for athletes and coaches

England Athletics have a new marathon programme that will support coaches and athletes with the aim of significantly raising the depth of performance at this event. We know that we can only do this in partnership with the coaches, clubs and athletes. This winter activities will include two performance group weekends in the Forest of Dean as well as a series of evenings focussed on marathon preparation.

Opportunities to get into coaching

Becoming a coach is a great way of enjoying athletics. Whether you are an athlete looking for a new dimension to your role in the sport, a parent wanting to get more involved, or have been inspired by seeing how other people have made a difference to people's lives, coaching has plenty to offer. Throughout the winter, as well as development opportunities for existing coaches, there are many courses for you to start your journey into coaching.
