Notes

Athlete progression is covered as below:

  • 365 Programme – Beginners 7 to 11 years
  • Developing and Progressing Programme (365) – 11 years to 16 years
  • Expert Programme – 16 years Upwards – Seniors/Vets

Movement between levels is based upon age and/or the ability of the athlete in question. This is always to be decided in discussion with the coaches.

High Jump and Throws – Developing and Progressing Programme (365)

Presently we do not have enough coaches to work weekly with younger athletes in these areas. Some coaching in Throws will take place from 7pm on Thursday and also on Wednesday 5pm. High Jump coaching is available from 5pm on Monday and Thursday for younger athletes.

Sprints Expert Programme

This group is not covered in the club coaching programme at present as there is no qualified coach taking it only senior athletes who look after themselves.

A session is available on Saturday morning which is run by Peter Kaneen where Jumpers and Sprinters will be catered for. Contact Peter for more information – see coaching contacts list. 

Contact details for sessions

We advise that if you are going to attend a session for the first time you contact the relevant coach in advance to check this is the best session for you and that there is space for you. Once you have attended and know the session is right for you then discussion can be ongoing with the coaches at the session.
