Athletics 365

Athletics 365 Workshop

 

This workshop will introduce the Athletics 365 Coach Pack and discuss the British Athletics Athlete Development Model . Athletics 365 focuses on developmental age rather than chronological age and there will be a discussion on child maturation and how this should influence session content for 8-16 year old athletes.

Through the supporting manual (included in the workshop cost) club coaches will be provided with a skills based syllabus of progressive athletics activities. This will help to ensure a consistent approach to developing young athletes across Northern Ireland. Practical elements of the workshop will allow attending coaches to observe and take part in delivery of sample RUN, JUMP, THROW sessions from the 365 manual. Topics included will be dynamic warm up, acceleration mechanics, maximum velocity running drills, jumping and landing activities, pull and push style throwing and hurdling techniques. Each activity is broken into 9 progressive stages. There will also be a focus on age appropriate physical conditioning.
