NCDP Endurance Symposium in Leeds & Steeplechase Development Day

An endurance symposium is taking place in Leeds on Saturday 14th November - the day before the Leeds Abbey Dash (which incorporates the England Athletics 10k champs).  The Symposium will explore opportunities for coaches and athletes across endurance events. A Steeplechase Development Day will also take place at Lee Valley on 29th November. The day is aimed at licensed coaches on the LCDP and NCDP and licensed coaches who wish to develop their coaching knowledge and skills in the Steeplechase.

17 days to go to regional technical day

It is just 17 days until the Lee Valley-based Regional Technical workshop for coaches. National Coach Mentors and experienced coaches on the NCDP will deliver the technical, ‘what to coach’ content and underpin principles of speed, jumps, endurance and throws using practical drills and activities.  Deadline for booking 26th October.
