Bury Hosted the Federation CTC (Coach the Coach) Coaching day on 13th April at Whitehead Park.
Eleven Federation members attended (a NHS emergency kept the Chester personnel away) the full day course as their first step to attaining a CA Club Coach award and to be officially recognised as coaches when teaching at their clubs. They came from Westmoreland, Crake Valley, Bury, Bowdon, Southport & Fylde Croquet Clubs to a place that presented superbly – the grass had been freshly mown & looked so good it could have been mistaken for an artificial surface.
The course was laid-on by two CA examining coaches – Paul Rigge and Don Williamson (also Federation members) – in response to a request received by the federation coaching officer. Lunch and refreshments were provided by local Jean Hargreaves.
A second course, already fully subscribed is scheduled for next month for another dozen fed members same time, same place.
