- Movement Skills & Physical Preparation – Movement competencies are key for athletes/runners of all ages and abilities and we are very keen to see coaches develop in this area. The movement skills workshops explore a range of activities & I would strongly recommend attending these workshops and encouraging club coaches to do the same. We are holding movement skills 1, movement skills 2 & physical preparation workshops in the South West over the winter period. Movement Skills 1 is being held in Bristol on Sunday 2nd December (https://www.ulearnathletics.com/moduleEvent/88090). Movement skills 2 is scheduled for Sunday 12th January in Taunton (https://www.ulearnathletics.com/moduleEvent/88030) and we will be holding a physical preparation workshop in Gloucester on February 2nd (https://www.ulearnathletics.com/moduleEvent/88031). As mentioned above, there will also be a physical preparation conference in Somerset on 2nd March.
