New Athletics 365 Workshop

Athletics NI’s next scheduled Athletics 365 Workshop will take place on Sunday 29th September 2019. The 4 hour workshop will take place at Ulster University Jordanstown from 1.00-5.00pm.

This workshop will introduce the Athletics 365 Coach Pack and discuss the British Athletics Development Model. The workshop is suitable for coaches, teachers and sports students.

Delivery of Athletics 365 focuses on developmental age of the athletes 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), coaches will be provided with a skills-based approach to developing young athletes.

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, running drills, acceleration mechanics, max velocity running, jumping and landing activities, push and pull style throwing and hurdling techniques. Each activity is broken down into 9 progressive stages. There will also be a focus on age appropriate physical conditioning.
