    For feedback from our valuable current coaching staff please see below “Friendly atmosphere, keen learners” – a new coach What it means to be a coach at PAAC? “Having been a coaching assistant for PAAC for almost 4 years now, the coaching is just as rewarding as it was back then. Working with a club that is rich in history is something to be proud of and working alongside experienced coaches, who you learn from on a weekly basis, means you’re building up your own knowledge, enabling you to coach kids confidently but also they learn from you too” Ross Lloyd What benefits it has brought you and or the athletes you support?

    “Coaching the athletes is a two-way street, some athletes challenge you to come up with new methods and keep training fresh as it should be. When you put it all together though in any event, seeing the athletes get a personal best, reaching a set target or stepping up training for their first or hundredth event, as a coach, there is nothing better in helping an athlete reach their potential” Ross Lloyd.
