scottishathletics are pleased to present three Regional Development Days over the coming months as part of our Throws Project 2021-22.
The first of these is coming up over the weekend of October 23/24 and interested coaches are asked to sign up via the Google form.
Here’s more information about the Regional Development Days . . .
The purpose of the RD Days is to assist coaches to progress their knowledge of the throws events and their awareness of how to apply this within the training environment.
By doing this we hope we will also increase the number of coaches working at the U15 and U17 level in the Throws and will look to achieve this by:
*Engaging with Coaches – Providing practical, accessible workshop opportunities for ongoing learning
*Building Networks – Helping coaches to work cooperatively and collaboratively with coaches from other clubs
