Coaches! If you run a triathlon club which focuses primarily on athletes aged 18 & under, this is for you.
General Motors Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada have once again teamed up for the GM Making Dreams Possible program. There are 50 grants of $2000 available to clubs for coaching development. The deadline for application is February 15th, 2009.
The specific page for club coaches is here.
This is not a program that OAT can apply to, but I can help with ideas, planning, scheduling and/or networking with other clubs and coaches if anyone is considering applying. For example, multiple clubs may wish to submit an application together, in order to support the development of a larger group of coaches. Or one club might be interested in hosting a seminar or series of seminars, open to all coaches for a small fee (ie. swim technique clinic, cycling skills clinic, guest speakers on youth development, nutrition/hydration, developing physical literacy, etc). E-Mail me if I can help with your grant application.
