What you can expect from your coach

All the club’s coaches are qualified through undertaking England Athletics (or equivalent) courses. Many have years of experience as coaches and competitive athletes. They will provide you with advice and will supervise training sessions.
 
General arrangements for coaching sessions will be publicised on the notice boards, newsletter and web site. Specific details will be determined by individual coaches and you should ensure you know what arrangements have been made.
 
Coaches are keen to see their athletes progress and will work with you to decide the most appropriate activities for your circumstances. Please let them know how you have performed and discuss with them the events and matches in which you would like to participate.
 
The club follows England Athletics policies in seeing athletics as moving from ‘fun to fulfilment’. This means that we encourage you to try out several events, particularly if you are a young athlete. We understand that, especially for young athletes, there are many calls on your time including other physical activities at school or college. The club’s (and national bodies’) policy is to keep training levels low for younger athletes and to discourage specialisation as long as possible.
 
Your coach will treat you with respect and will never force you to do anything you do not wish to do. Coaches will give you advice, guidance and encouragement but ultimately each athlete has to take responsibility for his or her training and performance.
 
All the club’s coaches are volunteers and receive no payment of any kind. Please recognise that they have other calls on their time including jobs and families!
