Movement Skills for Running Jumping and Throwing workshops

Movement Skills for Running Jumping and Throwing workshops

There will be a series of two part workshops on Movement Skills held across the country this autumn and winter.

These workshops are aimed at assisting all leaders / coaches at all qualification levels, for all different abilities and ages of the athletes they are working with – from a 12-year-old multi-eventer to the senior international discus thrower, to the recreational road runner attempting their first 10km race.

The two workshops will blend theory with practical to stimulate a better understanding of the crucial movement patterns that underpin all running, jumping and throwing activities that form the basis of running and athletics.

Who can attend?

Any level of coach can attend, including coaches who have previously been involved with local coach development programmes and benefited from the physical preparation curriculum.

The workshops are £20 and available to all licenced leaders, assistants and coaches.

The aim of the workshops is to give leaders and coaches the understanding of:

  • Movement and Shape – including how we move
  • Physical Preparation
  • How to develop the physical qualities required to complete the technical elements of running, jumping and throwing events.
  • Introduction to the skeleton and how this links to mobility / stability
  • Trunk stability, strength, power and mobility are examples of essential physical qualities that underpin athletics performance at whatever level; from recreational running through to an Olympic javelin thrower.
  • Inclusive and can be adapted for disabled athletes

Whilst the workshops are progressive in content, coaches will be able to book onto the workshops independent of one another.
