South West volunteer awards presented

The England Athletics regional volunteer awards evenings are held to recognise and celebrate the work of our volunteers, without whom the sport could not function. Volunteers were nominated by their peers and the England Athletics regional councils then made the decisions of who would win. Winners are put forward to the National awards which are presented at our Hall of Fame gala evening on 14th October.

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.
