Coaching Matters events have been very popular in the last couple of years and are often fully booked well in advance so early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. Courses are open to Full or Junior SCA members (including Family Adult / Family U18). Full payment is required at the time of booking.

These events are subsidised by sportscotland and the SCA and cost £35 per candidate.
