NISA COACH CONVENTION 2017 (New dates)
The three-day Coaches Convention dates have now been confirmed for 2017 and will take place from Saturday 5th August – Monday 7th August.
As with the past 3 years the Convention this will include a variety of both on and off-ice activities covering all disciplines, including seminars with internationally renowned coaches and motivational classes.
Level 2 + Coaches will be required to attend the three-day event once every three years in order to validate their coaching licence as the LCS credits system no longer applies, Coaches will be able to attend every year if they wish. Priority spaces are available to Level 2 + coaches, any level 1 coach who may wish to attend unfortunately cannot be confirmed until at least 3 weeks prior to the event and is dependent on whether any further spaces may be available.
Those who would still like to register for the 2017 Convention may do so by emailing Jessica Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org or via telephone on 01159 888 082.
