Yesterday saw the launch of #gocoach, a fantastic new campaign from England Athletics hoping to attract 10,000 new athletics coaches and run leaders by 2020.
Coaches are essential to the survival of our wonderful sport and we’re asking if you could share news about this important campaign across your own social media channels?
There are two ways they can get involved and it couldn’t be easier…
- Encourage people to find out more about the campaign
Share the link to the #gocoach website http://gocoach.englandathletics.org and encourage people to find out more about becoming a coach or run leader
- Thank their own coach(es)
Share a photo of your coach and tag the image with #gocoach #thankyou
‘A massive #thankyou to my own coach <INSERT NAME> as @EnglandAthletic launch the #gocoach campaign to find 10,000 new coaches by 2020’
