SPECIAL COACHING SESSION

We have arranged a specialised coaching session for athletes from U12 up (born 2003 or before) who intend to compete throughout the coming Track & Field season. As we have limited places available, athletes who take advantage of this extra coaching will be expected to compete at Leinster competitions as well as at County level. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, provided the applicant is a regular attendee at club training sessions.
The coaching sessions will take place on Fri next from 10.30 – 12.30am and athletes may take part in two events during the morning. Events being coached will be
 Long Jump
High Jump
Hurdles
Javelin/ Turbo Javelin
Shot Putt
Discus
Sprints ( concentrating on starts/blocks )
If interested, please text Theresa on 0868635797 to ensure your place. Please give your name and list three events in order of choice. We will do our best to give you your first two choices, but it may not be possible, when dividing the groups, to facilitate everyone. There will be a €5 fee to help cover costs for the day.
Please note that athletes will need to arrive on time, as the Sports Centre is closed for business on Friday and there will be nobody to open the gate once we have gone on to the track. Gates will only be open from 10.20- 10.35  latest. I’m sorry, but we can not be running up and down to open the gate to late commers, as this disrupts the coaching sessions.
