Coach Courses

The following Club Coach Courses will be held in 2017/18. Please note that the club coach course fee is now £30 per participant, and £20 for a retake.

Existing coaches are reminded that the BHPA now operates a system of Coach Revalidation, and that FSC recommends that coaches re-attend a Coach Course at least every five years to ensure that nothing gets forgotten, and that they are fully up-to-date with current thinking.

If you require further information or would like to book a place on any of the confirmed coach courses shown below, please email or telephone the contact shown for that particular course.

Please note the Instructor/Senior Coach course will only run if there are sufficient numbers wishing to attend.
