Multi-Discipline Group

There will be no Multi Discipline sessions over the 6 weeks summer holidays, but the children are welcome to join the Minors group who train at 6.30pm to 7.30pm and are running 3 sessions over the holidays on the 24th July, 7th August and the 14th August, these sessions are pay as you go for £1.50.  

All back to normal for the 4th of September.

Our newly qualified (ex sprinter and long jumper) Kevin Archbold is now going to be the lead coach for our group with myself helping him, along with Chris and John  As yet we haven't managed to get outside yet but we are hoping to do so soon so ensure your child is dressed appropriately just incase.

This Wednesday the 1st of May there is no session at the community college as we are holding a handicap race at Hardwick Park starting at 6pm on Temple Hill.  This is a free event and no pre registeration is necessary.

Hopefully see you all there.

Marie, 29th April 13

There is no session this week the 3rd April, but we are training on the 10th April.  Then from the 17th we hopefully will get some taining done outside, so please ensure your child is dressed appropriately fro the weather.

Hopefully your child has enjoyed this last term with different coaches coming in and getting the oppotunity to see what the other groups do to train for their events, thank you to John Stacey, Frances Barlow, Scott Hydon and Ean Parsons.

All back to normal this week, hopefully no snow!  This week we have John Stacey from England Athletics taking the session, he's planning on looking at the skills needed to improve our jumping.

Then on the 6th of March we have Ean Parsons leading the session doing some strength and conditioning work with us.

Sorry we have had to cancel tonights session due to the college closing due to the bad weather.

Marie  13th Feb 13

We had a great session last week using the sprinting skills we looked at previously with Frances and putting a 3 step run up to a triple jump, oh that did make us think!

Scott will be back with us for the next 2 weeks working on Endurance running and the skills needed to enhance longer distance running.

Please note there is no session over the half term holiday.

Then for the first week back (27th Feb) we will hopefully have John Stacey from England Athletics to take the session.

With effect from this half term, I am the lead coach for the multi discipline group and every term we will have some of our event coaches coming in to deliver a couple of consecutive sessions on their discipline.

Our first coach will be Frances Barlow our sprints coach for the 16th and the 23rdof January (please note some of the session on the 23rd of January may take part outside within the school grounds, weather permitting).

This new approach makes this a truly multi discipline group and allows the children to meet the other coaches and get a real feel for the different disciplines.

I will endeavour to keep this multi discipline page up to date of what we are working on and the coaches who are coming in.
