County Coaching days are held from January through to March.

Individual invitations are sent to all athletes who represented the county in the previous season. Schools are also asked to nominate students who have not represented the county but show an aptitude for athletics and/or who are new to the county.

Invitations are also sent to all who completed their event in the Junior Track and Field Championships and to the top 10 finishers in the Junior Cross-Country Championships.

All track and field events are offered with coaches coming from across the south-west region.

One of the aims of the coaching courses is to bring athletes together to meet with their team mates prior to the following season.
