Cockburn LAC are introducing a Senior Athlete Development Program to provide opportunities for athletes in the U14 and over age groups to receive specialist coaching from Level 3 Accredited Event Specific coaches. These coaches will provide 2 training sessions per event across the season whereby they can offer advice to the athletes in their chosen events and then the chance to review their improvements in the subsequent session.

The program will be run following the regular Saturday competition at Santich Park and will include a sausage sizzle lunch for participants and coaches. We will be offering a different run, throw and jump event each session and as the groups will be limited to ensure quality training participation will be on a first in basis. The events to be included in the sessions are Jump – long jump, triple jump & high jump, Run – sprints, hurdles & walks, Throw – Shot put, discus & javelin.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from athletes that would be keen to participate and which events they would like to receive training in. We will also be looking to arrange a trip to some Friday night Strive competitions as a group to introduce the athletes to senior athletics.

If we have insufficient numbers we will then open the invitation to U13 athletes.
