Coaches Mandate of Pinoyathletics.info

Andrew Pirie & Airnel ‘The Professor’ Talatala Abarra

Pinoyathletics has decided to host a directory and network of Reliable Coach Philippines in Track and Field.

To strengthen the Athletics culture in the Philippines, we believe that grassroots level coaches should always update and exchange their views and ideas.

On the latest innovations in training and coaching their athletes.

This is to assist athletes without a coach in finding a reliable program and coaches a potential mentor if need be.

There is really a systematic level of coaches’ development system in other countries, which is publicly posted on their federation’s website.

Since the call for coaching level from PATAFA is very limited, we are not going off coaches’ level of qualifications in terms of IAAF and other seminars.

The network will consist of coaches keen on records safekeeping, open-mindedness, and constant communication within the PinoyAthletics Community.

That’s why we are keen on building coaches who would like to be included in our directory can email a list of athletes they have worked with and levels of improvement to [email protected].

Also, we will launch a Social Media Group which will serve as an online network for all Athletics coaches in the Philippines who wants to collaborate in establishing their training programs.

Pinoyathletics has a very comprehensive database of results online and offline, which we will be using to counter-check the data submitted to us.

This ensures the athlete’s performance and provides records for the coaches if their programs are working well.

Hope to hear from all of you soon.
