European Athletics Coaches Association
Mentoring Programme

Learn directly from the most successful coaches!

With our Mentoring Programme you have the opportunity to attend live to a real training session, followed up by a Questions & Answers session, seating at a table with the mentor.

Every mentoring initiative has only a very limited seats available, so that coaches can create a direct connection with the mentor and have enough time to interact.
