Coaching

Most of our organised courses are run by the Croquet Academy at Southwick. For details on these see their website: www.thecroquetacademy.com. (Premium members of the Croquet Association receive a £10 discount off all courses.)

The Croquet Association offer a discount of £25 and the SECF offers £15 off the cost of Coaching and Refereeing Qualification Courses for members of SECF clubs. There are some (minor) restrictions, but please contact me for further details.

If you are looking for help from the SECF on any coaching issue or for other advice contact me stating your requirements and a contact number so that I or one of the coaches can discuss the matter further.
