Our Coaches

All of the following contribute regularly at Tuesday evening training. Some also offer additional sessions during the week.

All our coaches have recognised England Athletics qualifications and are licensed to coach.  They have been DBS checked, and have public liability insurance cover.

None of our coaches are paid for their efforts – all done for love!
