Coach Courses

The following Club Coach Courses will be held in 2016/17. 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 contact Stephanie Blankley at the BHPA office (tel 0116 289 4316) if you are interested in hosting a club coach course on one of the available dates shown below.
