Regional Coach & Athlete Technical Workshops

On Sunday 3 March England Athletics held Regional Technical Days with  athletes able to attend for sessions focussed on speed, endurance, jumps or throws. These days were for athletes of all abilities, aged between 11 and 18, and their coaches.

The sessions were organised by top coaches and are being run for the benefit of all athletes and coaches wishing to develop in their events or event areas, or even explore an event for the first time. Costing £20 per coach (athletes free), the sessions for each of these four event groups were held at all four of the locations available nationwide specifically covering:

  • Speed – 100m, 200m, 400m, sprint hurdles
  • Endurance – 800, 1500, 5000m, steeplechase, cross country and road running
  • Jumps – long jump, triple jump and high jump (pole vault will be covered separately)
  • Throws – shot, discus, hammer and javelin

Each event group and each venue delivered activities including:

  • General physical preparation ideas for a developing athlete
  • Functional movement screening
  • Keeping athletes healthy
  • Movement efficiency
  • Identifying physical limitations that could inhibit performance
  • Consideration of event – details to come
