Become an Assistant Coach – Help our Sport!

Please help our sport!

Without enough qualified coaches, the success of the last few years cannot be repeated or improved upon.

A new generation is required to assist with the nurture our young people, to guide our current runners, throwers and jumpers and advise mature athletes returning or trying the sport for the first time.

This November Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th The IOMAA is staging a course facilitated by England Athletics to help you become an Assistant Coach, the first rung on the ladder to gaining your Coach Award.

It is open for all people over the age of 16.

The IOMAA is generously donating £100 towards the £245 fee and there is a further discount for being a club member.

If you are not a club member, please join one, as it will be cheaper than paying the extra £60.

Therefore please send a cheque to:
Michael George, 27 WOODBURN SQUARE, IM1 4DE, made out to IOMAA NOT England Athletics as it says on the form or BACS to 14347237 55-91-00 with Assistant Coach as the reference.

More information is available here.

I would be grateful to receive your application at your earliest convenience as time is no longer on our side and the Isle of Man must display enough enthusiasm for England Athletics to run the course.

Michael George
