Squad Coaching

In addition to traditional Club Training, the Centre has introduced a program of Squad Coaching.

Being trained in one of the developed squads will give athletes access to specialised coaching that Club Training may have difficulty catering for.

Quite a few athletes, particularly experienced ones in the older age groups, prefer to focus their training on a particular event or event group, with coaches specifically trained in those areas.

The Centre is now investing in those coaches and is developing a structure to support these squads as they grow.

Squad Coaches are accredited with Athletics Australia, well trained and experienced. All event types are covered – sprints, hurdles, jumps, throws, walks, and distance running.

The nature of squad coaching necessitates that places are limited and some squads are already full.

If squad training does interest your family, or you would simply like to have a chat about what opportunities might best suit your children with their athletics development, please don’t hesitate to contact our Coaching Coordinator, Andrea Kewish.
