As part of our work to support coach development, a series of coaching opportunities are to be held throughout the winter. These are in addition to other workshops and events available to support coaches working in the areas of athletic development, speed, endurance, jumps and throws.
A range of opportunities are available for throws event coaches throughout the year. These include:
Technical Coaching Clinics
The coaching clinics are designed to help coaches develop a sound understanding of how to coach the event, building on the technical content presented on the Coaching Assistant and Athletics Coach Award.
These training and education opportunities are aimed to bring together coaches and their athletes to train and develop expertise in their respective fields of interest.
The sessions will involve practical activities using athletes to demonstrate key coaching points with clear take home messages for both coach and athlete.
Who can attend: Coaches with a Coaching Assistant and Athletics Coach Award (or equivalent). Coaches can bring an athlete as a demonstrator on the day.
Who will deliver: The session will be delivered by experienced, national-level coaches who will clearly and simply demonstrate how to develop efficient and effective techniques for throws within a club environment.
There are currently no clinics pending – for information on future opportunities, please contact Alison Grey.
