The Amateur Rowing Association, in conjunction with the West Regional Rowing Council and the Cornish Pilot Gig Association, would like to notify clubs of an upcoming ARA Fixed Seat Level 2 Coaching course.
Both courses will be taking place in October & November.
Course Content: The course is aimed at beginner coaches, focusing primarily on how to coach as well as the rowing specific knowledge of what to coach. Applicants must be 16 years or above, have some previous experience of rowing (either through participating and/or coaching) and must be able to attend all course dates outlined above, including their allocated assessment date.
There a places left on both courses , but the deadline is only two weeks away, so if anyone is interested they should apply asap. Those wanting to apply should note that they will need to take out ARA membership (which covers course insurance) before sending in the application form and cheque. ARA membership can be completed on the ARA website, and the category they will require for this course is ‘non-racing’. Once they have got their ARA number they should include this on their application form, before sending it in.
Reminder to clubs: If they want to apply for the CPGA ergos for the winter period the application deadline is September 18th (details on the CPGA website).
