2012 Workshop Programme
HSP runs a comprehensive workshop programme for local coaches and club volunteers.
Safeguarding & Protecting Children and First Aid workshops are held every 4 to 6 weeks as they are required for Clubmark accreditation and some coaching awards. Other more developmental workshops such as long-term athlete development, how to coach disabled people in sport and Sport England Small Grants are run less frequently
HSP remains the largest provider of workshops in the region and many of the workshops take place at convenient locations around the county.
For details of the workshops go to www.sportinherts.org.uk If you have a query contact: Rob Hardwick 01707 281204
