AAI Run Jump Throw Workshops
May 10th, 17th, & 24th - Irishtown Stadium
AIM: To upskill developmental coaches in a range of different events and to promote a multi event approach to their athletes in clubs, schools etc. In line with Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) it is important for both athlete and coach to understand the benefits of coaching and participating in a number of different events before specialising.
FORMAT: The workshops are delivered over the course of three consecutive weeks with two different events covered on each evening. Each event will be designated 1 hr. Please arrive at 6:30PM to start at 6:45PM each evening
CONTENT: Learn and improve on the basics of each of the event groups (Sprints, Hurdles, HJ, LJ, Shot, Javelin). We will also have athletes doing the events to look at common faults and how to correct. Each coach will receive a RJT document via email, outlining the topics covered each week.
This course is aimed at coaches who have completed either a Level 1 or Assistant Coaching Course.
