workshop information

England Athletics will be hosting regional coach and athlete workshops covering all of the sprints and hurdles events (100m – 400m, sprint and long hurdles).

The workshop format will be a 1.5hr theory based session on managing athletes in a training environment and a 1.5hr practical session putting theory into practice. The practical session will have an event specialist to identify key principles in order to add value and context to your coaching.

Each coach that books onto the workshop can bring one athlete, unfortunately this will be limited to the first 10 coaches on a first come first serve basis to make sure we can deliver a valuable learning experience to all the coaches. We will contact the first 10 coaches per event group to confirm they can bring an athlete.

Who will deliver: The session will be delivered by our England Athletics regional coach leads with support from national level coaches in the region

Who can attend

These workshops are pitched at coaching assistant and athletics coach level (old level 1 and 2)
