Development opportunity: Pole Vault workshop for coaches

England Athletics and British Athletics will be hosting a two-day Pole Vault workshop for coaches to observe and engage with this development opportunity. The event will take place in Loughborough on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March and costs £20 for one or both days. Holly Bradshaw and 11 of the UK’s best vaulters and their personal coaches will be working with a selection of coaches and practitioners as part of a National Development Programme weekend. This is a great opportunity for other UK coaches to be part of a jam-packed weekend of practical and theory-based workshops.
