Attention Club Coaches and other interested parties:

AAI Coaching courses: Athletics Auckland wishes to conduct coaching courses for clubs over the next three months, covering the summer season events from now until March and courses leading into the winter season with cross country and road event sessions over March to June 2019.

We wish to meet the needs of all interested people with practical and theoretical sessions to cover the technical and conditioning aspects of the sport. For the "in class" sessions I wish to facilitate the courses and use the "knowledge in the room" from coaches and officials/parent helpers with brain storming methods to encourage participation and learning.

Please provide the following information to Neil Bartlett at development@athleticsauckland.co.nz as soon as possible.
