Featured Course

In case you haven’t noticed we are all confronted with the Coronavirus Crisis. This has led to the cancellation of the Academy Games and the curtailment of our face to face training and education programs.

we have decided to offer a featured course every week to help you through this period of uncertainty. We will also be adding content alongside the course to change it up a little  – sometimes innovative, sometimes fun but always informative!

Please remember also that if you are having any challenges with this or any aspect of your training the NCAS is always there for you! Perhaps you can start with your coach and/or manager and of course D’Arcy is here to help too! Simply send her an email to and she will get back to you to discuss.
