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.
