Ian's Club Announcement

18/10/2013 19:56:36

I am announcing to all my club colleagues that I will be standing down as the Head Coach for WAC with immediate effect and handing over the reigns to Jamie.
The senior coaching team and I have been working behind the scenes for some time to enable this transition to take place. I believe the time is right for this change.
I am not going to disappear though! I will remain a senior coach and be part of the coaching team but relinquish such duties as organising coaching rotas, planning training schedules, undertaking team selection and assisting in the Championship race planning.
I will still undertake the occasional Tuesday night interval session, organise the Thursday evening runs and group leaders, the 5k handicap with Jim and remain a committee member.
Thank you.
