Introduction

Introduction

A Series of two progressive workshops open to all Leaders and Coaches.

These workshops are aimed at assisting all coaches, regardless of their qualification level, or the ability/age of the athletes they are working with – from the 12 year old multi eventer, to the senior International Discus thrower, to the recreational road runner attempting their first 10km race.

These sessions, with their blend of theory and practical are designed to stimulate a better understanding of the crucial movement patterns that underpin all running, jumping and throwing activities that form the basis of athletics. Then, to propose interventions that are not only designed to improve an athlete’s performance, but also to minimise the occurrence of injury. Key exercise progressions include multi-jumps (plyometrics), multi-throws (medicine ball conditioning), running drills and movement patterns such as squatting and lunging.

Whilst the series of workshops are progressive in content, coaches will be able to book onto the workshops independent of one another. There are limited places for each workshop, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
