Leevale will host a gathering of coaches and athletes for a Winter Coaching Series at CIT Track during September and October.
The aim is to provide technical coaching & recorded meetings in the areas of sprints, hurdles, walks, jumps & throws. Athletes will be encouraged to rotate between events. Experienced top class Lead Coaches have been appointed to each specific area & they will be assisted at each session by a coaching team. Athletes will be graded on their technical abilities as per grading scales formulated by the Lead Coaches. Every second meeting will be used as a platform for competition with all events timed/measured so that an athlete can get used to competing in a competitive environment & hopefully see an improvement in their chosen events over the 4 coaching meets. A win, win situation for all.
First session will commence on Saturday 21st September in CIT from 10.00am to 1pm. Sessions are for athletes aged 9 to senior athletes, coaches & parents from all corners of Ireland are welcome. Athletes aged U9 to U12 will not be eligible for this series but it is hoped that they could be accommodated separately in a less technical environment at a later stage. There will be registration at 10am on the day but we would rather if online registration was used so that the Lead Coaches can see how many will be in their groups & organise their sessions accordingly.
It is intended to run 4 sessions in this series, the 2nd & 3rd PROVISIONAL dates are Saturday October 5th & 19th with a 4th date to be added as we go along.
Athletes are encouraged to preregister for their preferred events in advance – REGISTRATION
