Coaching at Wimborne Athletic Club
The Club endeavours to provide its members with opportunity to participate in the widest possible selection of events across the athletic spectrum. To this end, it attempts to recruit, retain and develop a cross section of coaches who understand the needs of both the Athletes and the Club and are committed to maximising potential whilst ensuring that the ethos of enjoyment is always at the forefront of all activities.
Coaches are available for all the main track and field disciplines and hold various coaching level qualifications. It is now a requirement of UK Athletics that all coaches are screened by the Criminal Records Bureau.
Whilst the Club actively supports and encourages parents and helpers to become qualified coaches, it also recognises that certain individuals will freely give up their time to assist the Coaches without the pressure of qualifying as a Coach. The Club is, therefore, supportive and grateful to any person who feels they can make a contribution of their time, however small, to help the Club deliver its coaching aims.
