Eight weeks into my second spell in Denmark, and I thought this would be a good time to write my second Elite update, as a means of staying in touch.

1. Elite Coaching Programme

As we come to the end of the summer coaching programme, I thought it would be good to update you with progress on the autumn and winter training programmes. As I write I can confirm that the final dates are being put into place, and once this is done, the programme will be sent to the appropriate booking officers for confirmation. Once confirmed the programme will be kicking in at the completion of the summer programme in August. The programme itself will cater for all National teams, both on a Regional and National basis.
