Youth Development workshop an excellent evening
24 coaches recently attended a Youth Development workshop in Ipswich. The session was organised by the Suffolk Essex Athletics Network and the coaches came from clubs across Suffolk and North Essex.
The session was delivered by National Coach Mentor for Youth Development, Scott Grace and focused on the implementation of Athletics 365.
Coaches had the opportunity to discuss challenges they were currently facing. One example was the difficulty of carrying out assessments with a large coaching group; solutions were shared such as how peer-led assessment could be utilised.
Scott also demonstrated different youth development coaching styles, how games could be used to develop skill and different ways to ensure maximum involvement for each athlete.
Suffolk Essex Athletics Network Chair, Dave Smith, commented: “It was an excellent evening where Scott introduced the simplicity of using Athletics 365 and displayed various ways of how a coach can deliver 365 sessions. He also demonstrated how to assess groups by empowering the athletes to help in assessing their peers.
As a result, many I'm sure, went away with an added
confidence when using Athletics 365”
