Things you need to know

Booking

We recommend that you call us on 01245 605666 to confirm availability before setting out, as we may change times at short notice due to:

  • late bookings
  • extreme weather
  • children's coaching courses

  

Coaching policy

You will either need to train with: 

  • a coach qualified in the discipline you are training in 
  • someone that a qualified coach has identified as a competent person

These conditions will apply if:

  • you are under 17
  • you are training in an event that carries a risk of accident to yourself or others, such as pole vault and throwing events

  

If you are a coach, you will need to bring your coaching licence with you the first time you coach at CSAC. We will ask you to complete a form so we can log you on to our system.


If you want to register someone as a competent person to supervise in the absence of a coach, you need to call the Centre.


We will refuse entry to any: 

  • athlete who does not meet these conditions
  • coach or competent person who does not identify themselves appropriately
