London volunteer awards

England Athletics are pleased to announce the winners of the England Athletics London region Volunteer Awards.  The London 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.
