Future Coaches

19 August 2022

The Heart of Midlothian - Play the Game, Future Coaches programme will provide participants with key information, practical content and methods to help create energetic, exciting and engaging sessions.

Practical sessions will take place at Newbattle Community Campus in Midlothian during September to November with additional content being delivered online.
