Training & Coaching

Weeknight training (Thursday starting October 13th)

We kick-start our weekly NDLAC training / coaching sessions off at Foxglove in OCTOBER 2022. Lead by one of our fantastic centre coaches, training / coaching will comprise 2 hours total, split 1 hour each for U6-11 (530pm to 630pm) and U12-17 age groups (630pm to 730pm).

Focus will be on different events and disciplines – typically 2 per block – which we will try to give athletes as much advance notice on as possible (subject to change because of weather conditions or numbers).  E.G. A sample program is as follows:

Juniors U6-11 (530pm to 630pm):
1st Session: Long Jump
2nd Session: Shot Put

Seniors U12-17 (630pm to 730pm):
1st Session: Sprints / Starts
2nd Session: Throws

These training and coaching sessions, which serve as a great way to achieve even more / greater PBs, are exclusively for NDLAC athletes and are provided at no additional charge for our registered Centre members.

Athletes need not wear their NDLAC uniforms. Comfortable clothes for running, jumping and throwing plus enclosed footwear are all that you need, plus plenty of energy and a willingness to learn and have some fun! As always, bring along a drink and a hat for the earlier sessions in particular, and keep an eye out for any wet weather announcements via our NDLAC TeamApp page.

We look forward to welcoming many athletes and families at Foxglove each Thursday!

Additional Training Sessions

Additional training for Centre Squads (such as Relay teams) will be provided on an ‘as-needed’ basis.
