The British Triathlon Coaching Vodcast and Webinar series is back with all new content and another opportunity to invest in your coaching skills and understanding.
Since series one, we’ve been busy producing the next series of video podcasts (or vodcasts) and live webinars to help you in your development. The sessions will be delivered by a range of coaches, educators and athletes who will share their experiences and knowledge through the series.
The vodcasts and webinars will also be available on the Coaching Matters section of the Learning Hub after they’ve taken place for anyone who can’t view them live.
These sessions will be an interesting watch and great CPD for coaches of all levels and settings, with plenty to learn about and put into practice in their own coaching.
An outline of the second series is available below, with those wishing to attend needing to register their interest. Instructions will be sent ahead of the session to those who register about how to view.
