8-12 years coaching resources

As part of the ongoing work around a new national Coaching Framework for athletics in Scotland, scottishathletics has developed resources to support club coaches working with athletes at specific ages and stages of the athlete pathway.

Our aim is to add value to existing qualification courses by providing practical resources and support to clubs in their own club environment. One of the resources we have recently created is the resource for coaches working with athletes between ages 8/9-12 years focusing on multi-events skill development and conditioning.

The resources below are supported by free club workshops where a tutor will work alongside your coaches and athletes in your training environment to provide an explanation of the resources as well as delivering some of the practical content. To book a workshop for your club please contact Joanne Dennis.

  • Free practical club coaching workshops
  • Booklet containing key stage information and training blocks
  • 96 sample training sessions
  • Video clips illustrating each training block and sample sessions
