COACHING COURSE DATES

Please note that it is compulsory for coaches to attend the appropriate course but also a valuable way to learn the rules of these adapted games and also learn warm drills and coaching skill that can be used in coaching in the future.  All attendees will receive a manual to take with them for future reference also, which is a very useful tool.
