SPRING COACHES WORKSHOP


Date, location and registration link to be finalized soon.

This is a 3-hour workshop aimed as a refresher and pre-season preparation at already certified coaches. 
It also serves as a re-certification opportunity for those whose certification will be expiring.
The workshop gives TNS the opportunity to equip seasonal coaches with new tools, resources and fresh teaching ideas before the start of the outdoor season.
