Bexley AC is growing, and this means we have opportunities for new coaches on our team.

Many of our coaches, who are all volunteers, started right at the beginning – simply helping out at the track and then moving on to gain qualifications in coaching.

But where to start? England Athletics is running a series of ‘Leading Athletics’ workshops, which are held online over two evenings. It introduces you to the skills needed in leading athletics activities for young athletes. It’s perfect for athletes wanting to support younger members at their club or parents who want to take their first steps into volunteering and leading. Individuals completing the course will be able to support the Club’s coaches and move on to gain coaching qualifications.

The cost of this is usually £20 but the Club is offering to reimburse this fee for a limited number of places (upon agreement, see email details below).

The next sessions with availability are:

Session 1 05-05-2021 18:00 – 19:30
Session 2 07-05-2021 18:00 – 19:30

These fill up very quickly so if you are interested and would like to be considered for reimbursement, please email office@bexleyac.org.uk before Wednesday 28th April.
