Coaching Counts is delighted to be able to offer workshops delivered by Scottish National team coaches, helping local coaches to ‘reflect on coaching practise’. The conference aims to give local coaches the opportunity to learn from Scotland’s best and to have greater understanding of alternative / different coaching practises and styles and how these can benefit our athletes / players and can develop our own coaching skills.
