Training opportunities - sports clubs and coaches

Sports clubs and coaches can take up valuable up-to-date training at cost price thanks to a joint offer from West Oxfordshire District Council and Wycombe Leisure Ltd.

A series of workshops starts on Monday 9th October. The first workshop introduces the basic components of coaching sessions, including the roles, responsibilities and qualities of a coach.

"This course is an ideal introduction for new or aspiring coaches and a good refresher for existing ones," explains Chris Johnson, the Council's Sport Development Officer. "It will outline safe and ethical coaching practice with specific focus on the Code of Conduct for Sports Coaches."

Further coaching workshops will cover accessibility to sport, good practice and child protection and coaching children in sport.

Starting on Thursday 26th October is a training programme open for all those involved in running sports clubs. The first session looks at the issues of club expansion, such as more coaches, players and officials, increased revenue, improved eligibility for lottery funding and gaining quality ratings such as 'Clubmark'.

Further sessions cover fundraising and publicity and developing partnerships between clubs and schools. A popular session for all is Emergency First Aid on the 4th December.

Every course costs 20 per person which includes and information pack and certificate of attendance.
