At a seminar at the Royal Club AGM on June 16 National Coaching Officer Lynne Robertson unveiled the new coach education pathway for those currently teaching, and those wanting to teach, curling in Scotland. Now application forms are available on the RCCC website here for those wishing to become Assistant Coaches.
Four courses are being offered: at Dumfries (September 19); at Inverness (September 28); at Perth (October 3); and at Stirling (October 8).
The Assistant Coach (formally Level A), is the first level coaching qualification. An introduction to curling coaching, the Assistant Coach qualification provides anyone, whatever their curling experience, with sufficient knowledge and skill to assist Technical Coaches effectively, working mainly with beginners.
More information about the coach education pathway is here, and of course Lynne is available at Cairnie House to answer any questions. Her email address can be found here.
