The Windmilers are always keen to hear from members who are interested in starting coaching. The first steps in running coaching involve either the one-day Leader in Running Fitness course or the two-day Coaching Assistant course.

Triathlon coaching starts with the Level One certificate - a total of three days (including an assessment session) plus some private study.

The club can finance attendance on these courses, as long as you are prepared to commit some time to coaching for the club. There is plenty of flexibility about when and how often you do it. Contact in the first instance.

Many of our coaches are busy with other voluntary & professional activities related to sport, the list of our declarations of interest is a work in progress...
