SY Coaches learn more specific Strength & Conditioning Knowledge in an outstanding venue.

Posted on 22/02/11

On Tuesday 22nd of February the South Yorkshire McCain Athletics Network ran a free Strength and Conditioning workshop at the high performance gym, EIS, Sheffield.

7 coaches attended the session from across the network, which was delivered by David Parker, Senior Strength & Conditioning Coach - British Diving/ Rugby League. Through David’s links with the venue, the network accessed the S&C suite for free, enabling coaches to develop their knowledge further from the generic S&C workshop held on the coach development day in January.

The feedback from the coaches attending showed great success and a few are listed below.

• Good session covering what everyone wanted to see.
• Very clear delivery.
• Excellent, really appropriate and coach adapted the session for what we wanted and responded well to questions.
• Great clear demos from the deliverer.
• David was very thorough and knowledgeable.
• Very experienced and professional giving a lot of useful information

This workshop was the 3rd Youth Development session ran by the network, and is helping up skill the coaches across the county. The next workshop to be held by the network will be a Sports Coach UK Introduction to Fundamental Course at Dorothy Hyman Leisure Centre on Wednesday 30th March 2011.
