Belpark is offering an exciting new phase of coaching in our club – we want to double the number of coaches in our club and would like members of all backgrounds to participate. Over the winter months, we have put together a program of training to enable you to become a TriLeader Coach (28th Nov) and qualified in Sports First Aid (Jan 2016). The Tri Leader course is the first step on the Triathlon Ireland coaching ladder.

Who should attend?

It is also ideal for those who would just like to help out at sessions or events. This could be a Sunday bike spin, a beginners run or a junior training day. This course however is not just for those who wish to continue on to become coaches but also for club members and parents of junior club members who wish to help out at training sessions or events.

What topics are covered?

The course covers topics such as health and safety at sessions, child welfare,  practical workshops on how to help a coach during a session and basic rules of the sport.
