First of series of development sessions takes off

On Saturday 20th February, the Suffolk Essex Athletics Network saw coaches and athletes meet at Braintree Athletics Track to share ideas and best practices in long jump training.

The session was led by Eddie Hawkins, who is part of the National Coach Development Programme, and included many drills and training ideas including plyometric training, posture work, and event specific technical drills.

This is the first of many network coach and athlete development sessions being organised, with the next major network event being the upcoming  coach and athlete development day taking place on Saturday 27th March 2010.
