Team Manager training is designed to ensure that anyone taking groups of athletes to competitions or camps, locally or abroad, is fully equipped to fulfil their role.
Module 1 is an introduction to Team Managing and is intended to be a basic and informative workshop to give the confidence and knowledge to effectively manage a team at a local level. The course is designed to raise awareness of the key areas to consider in being a safe and effective team manager at local competitions, identify likely problems and challenges, to understand the need for risk assessments and to be aware of where further help, guidance and support is available.
Module 2 (Overnight Stays and Travel Abroad) cannot be attended without having taken Module 1.
