Supporting coaches at athletic training sessions, particularly for the 11-14 year old age group.
From late October to late February C&C runs indoor training sessions in the University of Cambridge Sports Centre. The sessions are between 6pm and 8pm on Mondays. We are particularly interested in young people who are willing to help these sessions be fun and safe for the children between 11 and 14 years old.
