Regional coach and athlete development sessions (speed)

These speed events take place online on 13 and 27 March.

As we are not able to meet in person and see your athletes in action, we will provide the option for coaches to send in videos of their athletes in training so that they can get feedback and advice

  • 13 March (10am-1pm): hosted by Graham Pilkington (North)
  • 13 March (9am-12pm): hosted by Martin Owens and Harry King (South West)
  • 13 March (2-5pm): hosted by Michael Baker (Midlands)
  • 27 March (2-5pm): hosted by Mike Leonard (South East)

Each session will discuss the Technical Excellence Framework (TEF) - a tool being used throughout the talent pathway to ensure that every athlete has a solid template to help them run technically well for their event. Your Regional Coach Lead will be presenting and discussing the maximum velocity phase of the flat sprint events. For hurdlers the discussion will be race modelling and race pace to hurdle 1.
