On the 25th March 2018 fifty BR coaches and staff assembled at the Bedford modern school to attend the 4th ‘Sharing Good Practice’ conference. The conference is organised by the ERRC Club and Coach Coordinator team and has successfully brought coaches from the Eastern Region together for the last two years.
Coaches spend time networking and attending different workshops to share ideas and make new contacts. Each conference has been unique with this event having a slant towards using technology in coaching.
