Many congratulations to Audrey MacLaren who completed the UKA two day Coaching Assistant course earlier this month in Carluke.
Audrey will be working mainly with the Junior Development and Intermediate Development Groups on Mondays and Wednesdays and we are delighted to welcome her to the T&F coaching team.
Motherwell AC Coach John Hughes shall be giving a talk on a structured training year at 7:45pm on Thursday 21st January at the Boathouse Gym, Strathclyde Park.
The talk should last no more than 30 mins, and explains what type of training sessions we do throughout the year and why.
A meeting has been arranged for parents of MAC athletes at Wishaw Sports Centre on Wednesday 4th November, 6.15 to 7pm (room TBA).
All Parents are encouraged to attend to hear about MAC Track & Field aims, competitions, membership, etc. MAC Coach Bob McCrum will be on hand to answer any questions he can.
Motherwell Athletics Club thanks two of its coaches, Elizabeth Martin and Luke McIlvenna as they cease coaching at MAC to take up new and exciting roles.
Elizabethâ€™s recent retirement from Coaching is understandable due to her business commitments. We will all miss her but wish her lots of success in her future work adventures.
Elizabeth has shown great commitment to the Club and our young Athletes over several years. She has all the positive attributes of what makes a great Athletics Coach â€“ a high degree of Technical Knowledge, good communication & organisation skills, kind, thoughtful and encouraging.
You would be welcome anytime to help out during a session so keep the licence up to date.
The whole club thanks Elizabeth for her long contribution to the club and its athletes.
Luke is another Coach who has had to resign from the Club due to an opportunity arising in Australia. A PhD is beckoning â€“ too good a chance to miss.
Best wishes to Luke and thanks for all the Coaching sessions you spent with the Club and with the Ravenscraig Run, Jump, Throw Club. Weâ€™re sure your Coaching skills will be put to good use Down Under.
Thanks to Bob McCrum for providing the tributes to Elizabeth and Luke.
