The deadline to book your place at the 2022 Coaches' Convention has been extended to Tuesday 31st May.
The year's convention will take place in Sheffield from the 25th-27th of July and has been reduced to two mandatory days, 26th and 27th July, but will include more elements than in previous years.
Coaches also have the opportunity to book onto additional courses on 25th July in order to aid coach relicensing. These courses include First Aid, Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Skills.
Those that are due to attend the 2022 convention include:
• Newly qualified coaches
• Those that haven’t been to a coaching conference before
• Coaches who did not attend a CPD session in 2021
• Those that were due to attend in 2020
The cost for the two mandatory days (26th & 27th July) is £275. This includes zoom sessions for discipline specific mandatory updates that will be arranged outside of the coaches convention.
The Party Celebration night will take place at Sheffield City Hall on 26th of July. Coaches can book a place for £25 that includes dinner, two drinks per person, a disco and awards ceremony.
Additional courses taking place on 25th July to aid coach relicensing are:
• In-person First Aid Course - £40 per person

There will also be the final opportunity for coaches to attend an in-person Skills session on Monday 25th. This will be the final Skills session hosted by BIS, so any coach that is yet to attend must book onto these.
