The Athletics Coach programme is designed for those who want to get involved in coaching athletes in track and field athletics. This programme advocates a multi-event approach in the development of athletes and covers the Foundation stage of athlete development. The Athletics Coach course is aimed at those looking to coach athletics to a high standard across the age ranges. Coaches who opt for this pathway will be expected to develop their technical knowledge and expertise across a range of events in relation to running, jumping and throwing activities. This will form the basis of a strong training and competition base regardless of the event-specific choice later in the athlete’s development. To be eligible to attend the Athletics Coach course coaches must have the Coaching Assistant qualification (or must be Level 1 or 2 on the old UKA pathway).

Once you have completed the course and have qualified as an Athletics Coach you can then access the online event modules (Pole Vault, Triple Jump, Hammer, Discus and Wheelchair Racing) on U-Coach  www.ucoach.com which are all currently free for Athletics Coaches.
