On Saturday last, September 22nd. Athletes, along with their Coaches or Parents took part in the glorious sunshine at Templemore AC’s new tartan track. The Sprints group discuss Core Conditioning
Workshops were presented in Middle Distance, Walks, Sprints, Shot Putt, Javelin and Long Jump from which participants could choose two.
All participants were also given very informative talks on ‘Winter Conditioning for the Club Athlete’ and ‘Nutrition for the Club Athlete’.

The idea behind the Development Days is to give athletes and their coaches opportunities to access event specific coaching, particularly in the technical events. The sessions are very interactive and tailored to suit the attending group whilst allowing both Coaches and Athletes to ask questions and give feedback during the sessions.

There will be a Development Day in each of the regions organised by the relevant RDO for that area between September and December 2007.
