RUNNING IN THE BURBS - TRAINING OUR COMMUNITY
Funded in Cycle 8
Running in the Burbs is a community-based running group that runs out of Jells Park in Glen Waverley. We focus on getting people off the couch and promote a healthy, active lifestyle through running and training for events such as the Herald Sun Run for the Kids. Our voluntary coaches have helped over 120 people achieve their fitness goals with substantial growth over the past 3 years, so we need to train extra voluntary coaches to Level 1 Community Athletics Coaching certification.
The total project cost is $1 760.00
Athletics Victoria Level 1 Community Athletics Coaching Course at a cost of $220 each.
This qualification is designed for community running groups and allows participants to be nationally accredited as a community coach to engage beginner athletes in long-term participation. None of our candidates are professional trainers.
The $1,000 grant will be used to put 8 of our voluntary run leaders through a Level 1 Community Athletics Coaching Course run by Athletics Vic at a cost of $220 each to benefit our running community
The balance of the funds will be sourced from fundraising activities of the club and from members contributions. None of our run leaders are professional trainers and this is for the group benefit
