Coaching Courses

As we have mentioned previously the club has needed more coaches for some time.  Again, we are asking parents, especially parents of our younger athletes, who may have an interest in coaching athletics to consider taking a UKA course.   The courses usually take place over a weekend and all costs are met by the club for those who can commit to coaching at least one of the Monday or Wednesday sessions.

Coaching Assistant

Who should go on this course?
Anyone aged 16 or over, who is interested in taking the first step into a coaching pathway and wants to understand the fundamental technical principles of coaching.

How many days will it take?
Two days (normally delivered over the course of one weekend) with no assessment.

What will I learn?
The technical coaching knowledge to underpin running, jumping and throwing activities. You’ll then learn how to apply these principles into a number of fun and exciting practical examples.
Topics covered include: Understanding fundamental movement skills, introduction to Athletics 365, delivering warm up and cool downs, coaching through fun, safe and enjoyable games, delivering speed work and endurance based activities, understanding the mechanics of jumping and throwing and the principles of session planning.

What will I be able to do?
By attending the Coaching Assistant course, you’ll have the knowledge and skills to deliver effective and engaging club sessions using task cards and session plans. Coaching Assistants will be insured to assist in the delivery of all aspects of a session whilst being supervised by a qualified Coach at the same venue.

The track is treacherous so there will be no training tonight – Sorry

Indoor Training  Fisher More

The final indoor session at Fisher More will be on Monday, 5 March, a week earlier than anticipated as the hall is needed for mock exams for the week beginning 12 March.  Therefore, on Monday, 12 March we will be back at Seedhill Track, 7-8 p.m.  There is a fee (around £3.80) to use the track which is collected at reception by Pendle Leisure Trust staff; this money does not go to the club.  All athletes who use the track have to pay this fee.  If your son/daughter has an ACTIVO pass it can be used at Seedhill.

Please find attached below information regarding the final Cross Country this year – a big well done to all those who have taken part.
