As part of its development initiative, Western Province Athletics has placed Foundation Coaches at schools with the aim of introducing more children to Athletics.  By doing this, we are facilitating development from grassroots level.  To monitor this process, all coaches need to submit reports on a monthly basis.  The reports indicate what activities they are doing, which grades they are coaching and an attendance register.
