If anyone is wishing to do a UKA coaching course then the club is willing to help out with facilitating this. If you are interested then please speak to Ryan Procter at the club or email on the club email address.
There are several courses we can support you with.
Assistant Coach - This is the first step towards becoming a coach and is the entry level coaching qualification. Covering all athletics based activities. This is open to anyone over the age of 16 years old.
Athletics Coach - This is a UKA qualification in Athletics and to do this course you must have already completed the Assistant Coaches course and had some experience of coaching. This covers all athletics disciplines including track running, throwing and jumping.
LIRF - This is the Leadership in Running and Fitness UKA course but rather than covering all athletics disciplines it is just based on running. Ideally ALL group leaders should hold this qualification to lead a group on the road.
CIRF - This course is the Coach equivalent of the LiRF course and to do this course canditates should have done the LiRF course and gained some experience of coaching already. This only covers Road Running, Fell Running, etc and is not an athletics coach award.
For more information look at the UKA website HERE!
Please let Ryan know if you are interested in any of these courses or would like further information.
For those of you who may not know who Dave is and never got the chance to meet him, Dave was one of the founding members of Trentham Running Club and a long serving committee member. Anyone who had the great pleasure of meeting Dave would have said what a genuine caring and pleasant person he was. Always going the extra mile to help someone out. Sadly Dave passed away after being diagnosed with a brain tumour and now the club honours his memory with a race called the Dave Clarke 5. Dave always joked, "If anything ever happens to me I want a race named after me called the Dave Clarke 5". We remember Dave fondly and do all we can to honour him, so please support his Son's partner in her efforts.
Dave’s Sons partner Mel ran “The Potter Arf” this year to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity and dedicating all proceedings in memory of Dave Clarke, so please take a few moments to at least follow the below link and hopefully make a small donation!
Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully support this good cause in memory of one of our greatest members.
