The RYA East Regional Training Day 2023

You may well be planning a refresher day for instructors or race coaches, getting everyone up-to-speed and prepared for a successful season. To help those plans, the RYA has organised Regional Training Days (RTD), supported by Gallagher Insurance, for your instructors, race coaches and volunteers responsible for getting people out on the water at your club.

A comprehensive programme of workshops will be offered across the small craft schemes – Power, Dinghy and Board sports – as well as Race Coaching. The theme for all participants will be ‘Creating a great participant experience’ and this will shape the whole day.

Robbie Bell, Regional Development Officer for the East, said “We are looking forward to the Regional Training Day at the Royal Hospital School – it is a great opportunity to get your delivery team together prior to the season, and to help your team to develop their skills. Given the theme around creating a great participant experience, we know that this is of crucial importance in our clubs, so we will be thinking about ways to encourage this throughout the activities”.

As well as a primary full-group session that will be common to every region, there will be small group workshops tailored to your region covering both personal and teaching skills, run by the same delivery team throughout.

Your team will also be able to meet RYA Chief Instructor Rachel Andrews or Liz McMaster and an RYA Coach Development Race Coach Tutor.

This year’s events are more wide-ranging than ever before, involving your Regional Development Officer, the Sailability and Coach Development teams and RYA Training too. They will provide participants with the opportunity to focus on developing their personal competencies and to refine their instructing and coaching techniques. Find out more about the event in your region, and book here. Bookings close on 06 March, so be quick!

The Regional Training Day offers you an opportunity to develop your club and your people, so please share these details with everyone who will benefit.
