BRITISH ATHLETICS TO HOST INAUGURAL PARA ATHLETICS COACHING SYMPOSIUM
British Athletics will host the inaugural Paralympic Coaching Symposium over the weekend of 28-29 September 2019 in Loughborough.
Taking place at the British Athletics National Performance Institute and Burleigh Court hotel, the theme of the event is integration. The classroom and practical based workshops will offer guidance and new ideas to ensure para athletes can be fully included in all aspects of club athletics.
The aim of the symposium is to bring together coaches who are currently predominately working within a club environment, and those coaching athletes who are competing at grassroots to national level.
British Athletics recognise the importance of growing the number of opportunities for specific para athletics coach development and learning in the UK. Therefore, the symposium offers an educational event specifically catered for coaches working within a club environment who either currently coach para athletes or wish to do so in the future.
In addition, the event will aim to raise awareness of the para athletics landscape in the UK, as well as promoting the British Athletics Paralympic Performance Pathway which is for athletes and their coaches, aspiring to reach Great Britain and Northern Ireland teams for major championships.
