Endorsed by UK Coaching – the central agency for coaching in the UK – it’s the only anti-doping course available in the UK that relates to the coach’s role. Coach Clean now includes an assessment that requires re-taking every 2-years to ensure that coaches knowledge is current and well informed.

To book onto your free spot please log into your British Wrestling membership portal and book your spot there. This will be a NGB certified workshop and will be supplied upon completion. There will be limited places for the workshop so it will be operated on a first come first served basis. If you have any questions please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Club Matters workshops are short training sessions, funded by Sport England and delivered across the country by Club Matters facilitators in a range of specific topics. The sessions will develop your skills, improve your knowledge and ultimately help you develop your club. They are for groups of at least 4 clubs and build upon the content of the online resources, but also include case studies, topical issues, exercises and a discussion section.
Clubmatters: “During this challenging time for our clubs and workforce, it is really important that we continue to gain ongoing support and training. We are therefore delighted to be able to offer the suite of Club Matters workshops through virtual classroom sessions. These workshops will continue to be 2 hours long”.
