scottishathletics are pleased to once again support the return of the Hammer Development Group sessions over the 2019/20 winter season.

Led by Jim Green and supported by John Costello, these sessions will provide developing athletes and coaches interested in Hammer an opportunity to work together and share ideas and best practice.

As well as technical support athletes and coaches will also experience event group specific conditioning and athlete development sessions.

Commonwealth Hammer thrower Susan McKelvie will be a guest coach for two of the sessions and coaches and athletes will have the opportunity at the end of Susan’s sessions to chat to her about her athletics career and coaching philosophy.

All sessions will take place at Grangemouth Stadium 10am to 12 noon on the following dates:

Sunday 3 November 2019

Sunday 1 December 2019*

Sunday 5 January 2020

Sunday 2 February 2020*

Sunday 1 March 2020

*Denotes sessions where a Susan McKelvie will be guest coach. On those days, Question and Answer session and refreshments at the stadium will follow from 12 noon to 1pm.

Each session costs £10 per athlete: payment should be made on the day to Jim Green. Coaches can attend sessions free of charge and are welcome if they do not have an athlete present.

With thanks to Alison Grey
