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 2021-22

Whilst we will be running a smaller programme of courses this year, the aim is that every region will have at least one course. During the spring/summer of 2021 we will be focussing on completing courses that have been suspended,  alongside Activator and some CPD then starting a new programe of coach courses in the autumn.
