New coach and refresher course dates released

Our coach development approach has faced challenges in recent years. Our goal is to transition to a predominantly online approach, focusing on the fundamentals of sports coaching as the foundation. We aim to align as closely as possible across the UK.

However, we acknowledge that this transition has been more challenging than anticipated. Despite this, our long-term vision remains unchanged. In the immediate term, we recognise the need to refresh our courses and qualifications.

To address this, we are offering a selection of one-day courses in Dumfries during June and July 2023. The courses available are as follows:

  • Level 1 Refresher: 10/06/23 Dumfries
  • Level 2 Refresher: 11/06/23 Dumfries
  • Level 1 Coach: 24/06/23 Dumfries
  • Level 2 Coach: 24/06/23 Dumfries
  • Level 1 Refresher: 15/07/23 Dumfries
  • Level 2 Refresher: 16/07/23 Dumfries
  • Level 1 Coach: 29/07/23 Dumfries
  • Level 2 Coach: 30/07/23 Dumfries

These courses will be conducted by our Lead Instructors:

  • Martin Grubb: Current L3, GB U20 Head Coach, Solway NIHL National League Coach
  • Dayle Keen: Current L2 with 15+ years of experience, Coventry Blaze EIHL Coach, GB U20 Assistant Coach

We understand that Dumfries may not be convenient for everyone. To accommodate this, we have designed a new course with a reduced timetable and more specific content.

Participants who started the L1 online course with Martyn King should complete and submit any relevant assignments by 8/6/23. After this date, the submissions will no longer be valid, and attendance at one of the newly planned courses will be required in full.

Registrations should be made by clubs on behalf of Coaches.
