Our series of Coaching Network Sessions has continued with another gathering having taken place geared towards the sharing of good practice and exchanging ideas.
Earlier this week, Femi Akinsanya ([pictured above) led the group of Jumps and Combined Events coaches for their latest meeting, with that tied-in with the National Academy gathering at Carronvale Conference Centre.
scottishathletics introduced these get-togethers back in the autumn in Glasgow as a number of Scotland’s top coaches met together to discuss and share their experiences and expertise in coaching and athletics.
The Coaching Network Sessions were set-up in order to help like-minded coaches who are working, or have worked with, performance athletes in their event. Initially, coaches operating at a high level in Scotland and in the UK in their respective event were invited to contribute.
The concept around the coach networks is for coaches to discuss, share knowledge and their experiences around a topic that is related to their event/event group; thus creating a constructive learning environment for all.
The first sessions were hosted by England Athletics National Coach Mentor for speed, Tony Hadley; British Athletics Head of Field, Peter Stanley; British Athletics National Performance Institute Coach for throws, David Parker, and Scottish endurance coach, Mike Johnston.
