Scottish Squash have confirmed the dates for the delivery of the first online/remote Level 1 coach education course following a successful information session attended by over 35 aspiring coaches on Tuesday 16th February.

The re-designed Level 1 course will provide the opportunity to upskill coaches by delivering sections of the course online, underpinned by Brightspace (Scottish Squash’s new virtual learning enviornment). The course will also include practical elements when Covid-19 restrictions ease which candidates will be able to complete in their local squash club or facility under the guidance of a nominated ‘supporting coach’.

The dates for the first course can be seen below. For further information on the Level 1 coach education course or to register please click here.
