Athletics Ireland under the guidance of our Regional Development Officer, Colin Byrne, is organising an Athletics Leader Course in the club’s complex on Saturday 12th March. This is an ideal opportunity for club members to receive top class tuition and should be availed of. An Athletics Leader focuses on introducing the fundamentals of athletic movement to children and the course also provides teachers, parents and club members with the skills and tools to manage and lead an Athletics Programme in their school or club. It also focuses on organising athletic games and activities for young children. It is aimed at those who want to coach or assist in their local club or school and is run over 1 day (8 hours). It is open to all who are 16 years of age or over and costs €60 which includes the Athletics Leader manual. No exam is involved only assessment throughout the day. Please inform any of the club officers if you are interested in putting your name forward. The club is always looking for assistance at training and this is an ideal opportunity for club members to achieve this certification on home ground.
