Coaching Courses: Parents are welcome to register for free Introductory Coaching          Courses run by Little Athletics Victoria. Parents can choose to register from a number of courses throughout August-October 2018. Courses usually take just a few hours and are a great way to take your first step into athletics skills awareness. There are no exams and the course is all practical. Even if coaching isn’t for you, the skills you learn are handy for when helping at the track and assisting athletes to perform basic athletics skills. The course is paid for by the centre for those assisting as an Age Group Co-Ordinator or with training in 2018-19. Course registrations are now open.
