As coaches we put a great deal of effort into ensuring that athletes who train have the best possible training, tailor made to their own individual needs, in return all we ask is the athletes show the same level of commitment to their training and compete for the Club when asked.

Training groups are split by age groups and ability with the aim of challenging the athlete to push their own fitness level, starting athletes by gaining basic fitness and to try other athletic events as part of their education.

Technical improvement of sprinting or hurdling style is fundamental to advance in athletic events and to remain fit and minimising risk of injury. As coaches we frequently attend UKA local and national courses looking at enhancing our technical and training techniques.

Often athletes meet and socialise outside of training. The goal is to allow the athlete to enjoy their athletic experience, feel fit and challenge themselves in training, maximising their potential and jointly set the athletes race performance targets. A fit body has a fit mind.
