Be inspired by top level coaches

15:32 24 January 2013

The 2013 Peninsula Coaching Development Day, on Sunday, April 21, which supports the development of sports coaches, PE teachers, physical activity instructors and HE students and lecturers working with athletes and players at all stages of the participant pathway in the South West, has been launched.

The day kicks off with an inspirational keynote address from Jason Lee, Great Britain and England Hockey Senior men’s head coach, which promises to provide coaches with an insight into the player-to-coach transition, the high and lows of coaching at the elite level, including some behind-the-scenes experience from the 2012 Olympics.

In addition to this there are 20 practical workshops and interactive seminars, including sport-specific workshops from judo, hockey, rowing, Run England and rugby union, all of which are being delivered by high quality coaches and coach educators working in the South West and the opportunity to network with other sports coaches.

To view the full programme in interactive flip-book format go to the Devon FA website and click on http://issuu.com/charliekeene/docs/2013pcdd. You will find attached there an event booking form to download or, alternatively you can complete an online version of the form at www.activedevon.org/2013pcdd

A discounted early bird rate of £30 is available to the end of January 2013, thereafter the delegate fee will increase to £35. If you are a current HE student or lecturer you will qualify for the £20 rate.
