To assist the children in reaching their full potential, Wakehurst Little Athletics provide professional coaches to teach the children in the U/9 and above age groups proper technique in a variety of disciplines.
Children in the U/7 and U/8 age groups will be taught the basic techniques of the different events that they will compete in on Saturdays.
Due to the large number of children that typically attend training sessions, parent assistance is always required. It would be greatly appreciated if at least two parent helpers accompanied each group. They can assist the coach with most activities including much needed “Crowd Control”. Helping at Training will now be one of your required “Parent Duties“.
Parents do not need to have any special training to assist the coaches however if they do wish to gain the skills to be able to more actively participate at training then Wakehurst Little Athletics will pay for their enrollment in the “Introduction to Training Course” conducted regularly by the Little Athletics Association.
At our training sessions we aim to provide the following
Fun games to develop strength, stamina, agility and speed.
Each training session will be divided into 3 x 30 minute sessions so that the athlete can train for three events each week.
Long Jump, Triple Jump, High Jump
Sprints, Hurdles, Middle Distance
