HILARY NASH – (0787 5560754) Level 3 performance coach for Young Athletes (1994) and Sprints (1997)
I ran the club’s Saturday Club at Whitchurch (7 – 13s) for over 15 years as well as coaching sprints (11-16s) mid week.
I introduced under 11s to the Fun in Athletics team competitions and have team managed/coached the Avon Schools under 15 Sportshall team for 25 years.
I coach athletes across a range of events until they need a more specialist coach to support their progress and development.
Currently I coach on Monday and Wednesday evenings at Whitehall. The first session for the Junior Academy and then throws for the U13s upwards. I liaise closely and work with the specialist throws coaches.
I competed at school and did well in discus and triple jump but never competed for a club until after my son had become a member. One year I was the club’s highest points scorer in the Avon League and was 3rd in discus at the County Champs in 1992.
I enjoy most introducing young athletes to new events and seeing them gain skill and confidence.
