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.
