Well done to everyone who successfully completed the recent Coaching Assistant course.
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.
