Welcome to the July edition of Evolve

Earlier this month, the junior participation program Ready Set Trot unveiled a host of changes which will offer greater flexibility for coaches and more options for participants. The changes reflect feedback received from coaches, delivery providers, parents and participants during the first two years of the program. We encourage all coaches to take a look at the improvements on offer and consider signing on to become an accredited delivery provider. Visit the website www.ReadySetTrot.com 

Calling all EA coaches

Changes to the Ready Set Trot program are offering greater flexibility for coaches and more options for participants.

The new model allows coaches to set  their own lesson prices and rather than provide set lesson plans, the program now centres on participants achieving specific skill outcomes, giving coaches the freedom to run the program to suit their business, or even integrate it into their existing beginner programs.  Read more about how Ready Set Trot now benefits coaches HERE Facebook Like Button Tweet Button
