As the start of the new season is drawing nearer I am delighted to let you know of a couple of coaching/training opportunities for RWLAC athletes. We will update families of other coaching opportunities closer to the season.
Sprint and Middle Distance Training –
Our Middle Distance coaching is run by Peter Bottrill. Peter is a level 3 Athletics Australia Club Coach Accredited. Peter is also our RWLAC Coach official and holds current LANSW Officials accreditation. Peter has coached a numer of athletes in Middle distance who have performed at Regional and State level competition.
Our Sprint coaching is run by Stuart McGraw. Stuart is a level 2 Athletics Australia Club Coach Accredited. Stuart has also been a RWLAC Comittee member for a number of years. Stuart has coached a number of athletes in Straight Track events who have performed at Regional and State level competition.
Our Centre will be offering middle distance and sprints training at the start of the season on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Further details about times will be posted closer to the beginning of the season.
The following coaching opportunuties are being offered at various locations across local Revesby, Milperra area. For weekly locations and session information, stay tuned to our Revesby Workers Little Athletics Centre Facebook page
Friday night throwers group (6.30 – 8 pm) and everyone is welcome free of charge – all ages, kids and adults – it’s a throws ‘circuit’ and they spend 20 minutes on each event (discus, javelin (real and turbo for juniors to learn throwing style), shot put and hammer last of all and only for those old enough). If people want to focus on only 2 events then they can stay longer on those events so it’s quite casual. It is not coaching in the traditional sense but everyone gets tips. The group is designed around everyone having a go and learning from each other (although some coaching is given to help the kids get it right).
Anyone is welcome to attend these sessions with Deborah Engeler as long as you don’t expect traditional coaching! You can attend any week. This is an ideal opportunity for kids to get their skills up before the start of our season with at least 6 weeks before we start I recommend this to any of our athletes who are interested in throws.
