Do I need any qualifications or experience?
No. We have coaches in GTC from all backgrounds and walks of life. One consistent attribute for all effective coaches is being a strong communicator. The rest can be learned and coaching is a constant process of learning, even for those with years of experience.
When can I coach?
You can coach as soon as you have passed your Level 1 Triathlon Coaching certificate. These three-day courses are organised and delivered by experienced and encouraging tutors working with Triathlon Scotland.
From the Triathlon Scotland website: “The Triathlon Level 1 qualification enables coaches to lead and deliver pre-planned sessions or plan basic sessions on their own (reviewed by higher-level coach) in a range of club environments without the need to be directly supervised.
“Candidates will gain the knowledge to adapt sessions to meet the needs of a variety of participants”.
How much do the courses cost and is there any funding available?
Full details of course costs and subsidies available.
There is also a subsidy available from Glasgow Life.
