Coaching Edinburgh – Free spaces on Child Protection and First Aid courses for ClubSportEdinburgh members

 

The City of Edinburgh Council has developed the 2017 program of coaching workshops.  As a benefit for ClubSportEdinburgh members we have some free places on First Aid courses and Child Protection workshops on offer. 

 

Free spaces on each workshop will be limited to one person per club.  To book a free place, members must e-mail clubsportedinburgh@outlook.com with the coaches name and their email address along with the nominator (you or another club representative’s) name and position in the club.  The program for this year is below:
