In order to maintain a Coach Licence all coaches need to attend one certified CPD (continuing professional development) course per year. This event, which qualifies for CPD, is free to licensed coaches, £10 to non-licensed coaches. Also suitable for players who are yet to qualify as a coach, so if that is you this course would be a great experience and provide a good understanding of different coaching needs.

For either event please register your interest by replying to ertt@btinternet.com
