2020 Coaching

Watch this space for the shiny new 2020 coaching programme, which is still being finalised… in the meantime have a look at what we did last year:

2019 Coaching Programme

Wanna go faster, further, or simply the same distance but with more confidence?  We are delighted to announce another full programme of coaching in 2019 from top pilots in the WGUK team >> This is guaranteed to deliver!  We had superb feedback from those who joined the programme in 2018, we won’t repeat the reviews here –  read it in S&G.

>>  Think this is not for you? So did several of last season’s coachees who took a bit of persuading to join in – they say they’ll be back in 2019!
