Course: Couch to 5k leader training

Venue:   Mercy College Sports Centre, Sligo

Dates:   Monday 16th Feb and Monday 23rd Feb

Time: 7- 10pm

Course Provider: Sligo Sport and Recreation Partnership

Cost:  €10


The course is designed to provide sports community leaders who have a background/interest in athletics with the knowledge and skills needed to deliver a couch to 5k programme in a range of locations including sports clubs, community centres and with various community groups.

The intended outcome is that the course participant will be competent and confident in taking charge of a group, with initial mentoring support from an experienced couch to 5k coach, for the duration of a couch to 5k programme. Specifically, the successful leader will be equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to plan organise and lead beginner running sessions within their own group setting. 

However,  there would no pressure on the participants to follow on with delivering a programme but, in the event that participants felt it was something they would be interested in doing, the SSRP would certainly look to support them with this.

Those interested should contact SSRP Friday, 13/02/15.  If anybody wants further information they can contact SSRP on 071-9161511.
