- Volunteer Opportunities
You can help.
Everyone at F&C AC is a volunteer, from parent helpers, leaders, coaches, the commity and the chairman. Without them our club would not exist. We need your help to keep to club running.
Come along and offer your help, give it a go, and if you like we can then help you continue your volunteering with specific training.
Courses are available from England Athletics for which the Club will pay fees. In return we ask that you help train once a week or so. If you would like to attend any of the courses, or possibly a future course, then please get in contact.
Athletics Leaders award.
The Athletics Leaders Award course is primarily for those working with young athletes or athletes in the early stages of the athlete development pathway and is aimed particularly at those that are interested in helping out at their local club. It covers the following topic areas:
Athletics Coaching Assistant
This is a two day course open to those 16 years of age and above. It is the first step into a coaching award and teaches the fundamental technical principles of coaching. On this course you will gain technical coaching knowledge to underpin running, jumping and throwing activities. You’ll then learn how to apply these principles into a number of fun and exciting practical examples.
Next Assistance Coach course is Bradfield College
UK Athletics offer specific training courses for those interested in coaching athletics to younger children. Like the Athletics Coach course it is carried out over four days and ends with an assesment.
