The aim of the workshop is to provide an in depth session on horizontal jumps to coaches, assistant coaches and athletic leaders based in Avon county and surrounding areas. By the end of the session all participants will understand how fundamental skills as prescribed by England Athletics are the basis for approaching training for jumps.
The format will be a maximum of 2 sessions for up to 12 coaches per session. Each coach can take along a maximum of 2 athletes so that they can practice the new skills in an interactive environment.
An experienced coach will clearly demonstrate the essential movement patterns required for efficient jumping. Coaches will learn how and when these skills should be transferred from low to high intensity movements.
The session(s) will also cover drills and basic exercises from a general conditioning context to those that are more event specific. Each session last 3 hours (plus an hour break).
They will be held at Bath University Sports Complex on the following days :
