Coaching Children

[Thu 9th Dec 2010] 

If you are interested in coaching junior athletes then please read on.

England Athletics have put together some workshops to address some common requests the team are hearing in our travels around the various clubs in the region.

Due to the fine work the clubs and Athletics Networks are doing in the area, and with the 2012 Olympics just 613 days away, more and more youngsters are choosing to get involved in athletics. To ensure a consistently high quality of service to these youngsters, England Athletics have develop a club resource called “Athletics 365”. Many of you will have heard about it and be aware of how it can be used to develop your junior sections into fun, vibrant places for young people to come and try a multi-discipline approach to developing athleticism and athletic skill.

To ensure the highest standards of delivery, the 4 workshops we have been asked by you, the clubs, to provide are detailed below:

Ĝ    An Introduction to Athletics 365

Ĝ    Fundamental Movement Skills

Ĝ    Positive Behaviour Management

Ĝ    Physical Preparation & Conditioning for juniors.
