Coach Development and Training Day

What Is the Coach Development and Training Day?

Coach Development & Training Day provides coaches with the chance to attend multiple sports trainings and coach education courses in one day. It is a great opportunity to meet, network and swap best practices with other coaches from around the area.

A t-shirt, snacks and lunch will be provided.

Through coach education and certification, coaches are able to enhance their skills while helping athletes reach their full potential. Certifications are valid for four years from the date of training.

Please register by Monday, May 15: https://forms.gle/MmkiXqW75akXyjqv9
