People become coaches for a variety of reasons, perhaps a parent wanting to help out with their child’s club, or an experienced Age-Group athlete wanting to give something back to the sport they enjoy.

Whatever the reason, it can be a rich and rewarding role helping others develop and achieve their personal triathlon challenges. The role of the coach is vital to the success of all participants at every level.

We can offer a range of qualifications and professional development opportunities to suit any aspiring coach.

Coach Education – Course release 2020-21

Normally we  release around 30 courses in July each year  which would start from October onwards, we have  been working hard to source and secure venues, but  this has been very challenging in the current situation- whilst  there are a few courses confirmed and will be open  for booking,  the majority are still be worked on by regional managers.

The majority of venues are not yet taking bookings for what we require for the practical session - we are hoping this will change over the next few months.

We have added pages for those courses that are in the planning stages to give prospective coaches an idea of what, when and where.  Unfortunately we cannot take bookings on these courses  until we have venues confirmed. 

Whilst we will be running a smaller programme of courses this year, the aim is that every region will have at least one course. The intention is that we will extend our coach education across the summer 2021 to try and meet demand.
