Volunteer Coach Mentors form an important part of the Triathlon Scotland coach development team and are provided with training in development to enhance their skills. They are matched with coaches who are looking for bespoke support to develop areas of their coaching that match a mentors areas of expertise. This may be on a sport-specific basis, e.g. helping a coach to improve their running coaching or on a more generic basis, e.g. supporting a coach who has recently become head club coach and now needs to lead and manage a team of coaches.
