Need a coach? We can help you find an athletics coach to guide you on your athletic journey.  

What a coach can provide

If you are keen to improve your performances and learn new skills then finding a coach and joining a training squad is a great alternative.

In Hobart the coaching environment is very collegial and many welcome athletes from other clubs to their squad. Training with others in a team environment provides motivation and support and will enable you to really enjoy athletics.
