“For the attention of those booking, the both managers courses have been centrally located to allow the Education & Coaching Program to undertake training and assessments of new volunteer manager instructors. This will allow the development of the program and the allocation of the successful instructors to individual regions allowing the program to supply locally based courses to reduce the impact on clubs.

The structure will be issued once this process has been completed and hope that you will support the initiative in creating a structure that supports clubs in their regions.”
