Course Information

If you work with athletes aged under 18 and want to help your athletes maximise their potential and have a positive athletics experience this is the conference for you.

We have great presenters lined up to deliver content that will help you to:

  • enable athletes you coach to maximise their potential
  • understand a teenage athlete’s physical, technical, mental and emotional development
  • be better equipped to develop your athletes by knowing appropriate training and techniques for:
  • physical preparation to maximise performance and minimise injury
  • technical development building
  • endurance supporting a young athlete’s mental and emotional
    development

The conference will focus on how to develop an athlete physically, technically, mentally and emotionally with a specific focus on developing the athlete through the teenage years.

Day 1 will focus on supporting coaches to apply appropriate coaching at the various stages of progressing; the physical conditioning element required to maximise performance and minimise injury and key consideration for youth endurance athletes.

Day 2 will focus on the mental and emotional development and athlete will go through and how to support this. We will then progress onto the Skill and Technical development of an athlete across a range of athletics events. The second part of the day will be practical examples of athletes demonstrating these events.
