The Team of Experts
”Daz Drake here, Director of Athletic Performance Academy (APA) Ltd. I am so excited to tell you about this Coach Mentorship. I’m honestly telling you that putting this together for you has been one of the highlights of my coach education career to date over the last 14 years of being involved in strength and conditioning and athletic development. It has been awesome to learn from so many great coaches over the years with so much experience, passion and dedication to their profession! I myself have had and continue to have many great mentors who I can turn to for advice and guidance, speak to about jobs and access their networks. For me personally it really has helped my development as a coach and professional in this industry. A mentor should have good, credible experience and more importantly have been there and done it to a degree. They should also be able to help you get where you want to go. This is what this programme is designed to do.
You’ll get 20 hours of mentoring (in itself this is worth £800) and the option to attend our weekly in service training as well as attendance on two of the APA 3 hour workshops which run in October half-term, February half-term and May half-term (value £60).”
