Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club

Final T&F Coaching session

Today was the 3rd and final Track and Field Coaching Clinic hosted by the club and supported by the MADF charity.  With the initial weather forecast not looking so promising, it was great to see so many enthusiastic athletes turn out for the session. We had 30 in total from the U13 age group all the way through to athletes who compete in Masters Championships (you are never too old to learn new skills!!).

These clinics have been a success once again, with so many coaches volunteering their time freely it is possible to provide individually tailored sessions.  The 12 coaches today delivered Hurdles, Sprints, Pole Vault, Hammer and both Long and Triple Jump sessions, so there really has been something for everyone, whether that be for the first time or to improve skill levels in existing events. We have always had plenty of positive feedback from those who have taken part and equally we as coaches have found a great sense of satisfaction from sharing our knowledge.

Thanks to all those who have attended the clinics this season we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
