Coach Clinic Information

Image by Bobby Gavin

The coaching clinics are designed to help coaches develop a sound understanding of how to coach the event, building on the technical content presented on the Coaching Assistant and Athletics Coach Award.

These training and education opportunities are aimed to bring together coaches and their athletes to train and develop expertise in their respective fields of interest.

The sessions will involve practical activities using athletes to demonstrate key coaching points with clear take home messages for both coach and athlete going forward.

We will look at the upright running technique of the athlete in improving the athlete’s top speed (maximum velocity). During the session we will cover the key running drills.
