Coaching (and some Club Development) Events in September

There’s a lot coming up of interest; I’ve emailed this out to all coaches, but not convinced it’s got through, and others might be interested.  Sorry, can’t seem to add attachments, can email you if interested.

Monday 1st September: AthleFIT Workshop (6-9pm) in Bristol

Contact: Run! City Activator – Anna West on 07718 394516 or  Please register your interest by Monday 25th August

Wednesday 3rd September: Diary Support Workshop for Coach in Running Fitness and Athletics Coach

For coaches working towards diary completion of either your Athletics Coach or Coach in Running Fitness qualification.  Please note there is a CIRF/AC assessment weekend at Yate on 26th October for which diary submission should be made by end of September. This is a great opportunity for coaches wanting to tie up any loose ends of the diary and get direct support and guidance through a regional tutor prior to submission.

Takes place at University of West of England. Contact Charlotte Fisher or 07718 394751

* Monday 22nd September: Club and Run Leaders Forum (7-9pm at the Bristol Lawn Tennis & Squash Club, Redland Green, Bristol, BS6 7HF)

The purpose of the evening is to up-date you on the various programmes that England Athletics offers (see attachment), but specifically with regards to the Run! City project which aims to get more people running than ever before. We hope the evening will be informative and useful and that you will go away with an insight into how we are working towards getting more people running, the role of clubs and Run England in that and how individuals or groups and clubs can get more involved and what support and provision we can offer.  Contact Charlotte Fisher or 07718 394751
