​The speed focussed Event Group coaches have come together to organise a series of Workshops specifically focussed on Speed. Ten workshops are planned between September and June, approximately once a month on a Thursday evening.

The workshops will be most useful for U15 and U17 athletes who attend sprint Event Groups, Combined Event groups, or in certain circumstances Jumpers or Throwers. On workshop evenings the normal sprint Event Groups at 7pm will be replaced by the Speed Workshops.

The main aims of the Speed Workshops are to:

  • give athletes better understand of the “Why? What? and How?” of speed development - which we think will make them all round better and more informed athletes;
  • breakdown any artificial barriers between groups; and,
  • share knowledge between coaches and improve our coaching knowledge base and practices.

The attached presentation provides some background, including the programme sketched out so far.

If you have any questions you can either email me at Dave.sherry@wadac.org.uk, or ask your normal coach.

See you there!
