Life as a Head Coach - Occasionally Fraught but Always Immensely

September 24, 2018

It has been two years since Community Champion Kate Offord featured in our article and podcast ‘Tri-umphant transition: Making the step up from assistant coach to head coach’. We caught up with Kate for a progress report. It turns out, this has been a highly eventful period in Manchester Triathlon Club’s 30-year history. Here, Kate reflects on the valuable lessons learnt during her time at the top, which has included a multitude of highs, tempered by a few tense lows.
