The expanding team of coaches at Holland Sports Athletics Club is both qualified and dedicated. All the coaches offer their coaching services during their free time and on a voluntary basis. They share the common aim: to help each athlete enjoy their athletics and achieve their sporting goals.

We encourage the support and development of assistant coaches and parental assistants to enhance our coaching.
