Coaching

Coaching is not specifically included in our regular weekly meets.  We offer a range of coaching options to suit beginner, intermediate and more advanced athletes.   Athletes who attend coaching often see vast improvements as they work on their technique.

Our offerings include:

  • Tuesday coaching – athletics fundamentals – running/jumping/throwing

  • Thursday coaching – middle distance running

  • Sunday specialist coaching – various events as scheduled

  • Squad coaching – certain events only (subject to coach availability).

All coaching sessions will be advertised here and via TeamApp.  Please ensure that you sign up for the sessions to ensure your place as many sessions will have limited places.

Tuesday Evenings 

General Training

This session will include some general fitness, core-strength and flexibility activities.  Improvement in these general areas will benefit all athletic and other sports performance and should also protect athletes from injury.

For the first 6 weeks we plan to introduce each athlete to the basic techniques of all their events.  The afternoon is divided into two sessions and athletes are divided into three age groups:

  • Junior – U7 & U8 (1 hr only)

  • Intermediate – U9 & U10

  • Senior – U11+.

Commences start of school term 4

  • .Tuesday 4:30 – 6:00pm, Jack Cook Park.   .

Thursday Evenings 

Distance Running Training

This session is an all age session and parents are encouraged to attend.   Children from age 7 can participate, with their parent supervising and assisting as necessary.  The focus of this session is endurance, fitness and interval work.

  • .Thursday 6:00 – 7:00pm, Jack Cook Park.

Sunday Mornings​

Specialist Coaching

During the Little Athletics season, we will also hold specialist coaching with qualified coaches on a number of Sundays.  This will be targeted at U9 and above and will be at a more advanced level, for those athletes looking to improve performance.  We will endeavour to ensure specialist coaching is offered in each event at least once throughout the season.  

Open Club Morning 

Track and field (including equipment) is available for members to use.  Members utilising this benefit are asked to act in in a safe and responsible manner, putting all equipment back where it was obtained from.  An adult must be supervising at all times.

  • Sunday 8:00 - 11:00am, Jack Cook Park.
