Coaching of athletes involves the building core strengh and the development of technique. 

 

For young athletes, the building of core stength is critical. Without that core strength the ability to learn and develop new motor skills is limited.  Young bodies must also be ready to accept some conditioning. It is for this reason that Little Athletics recommends that athletes under the age of nine do not engage in conditioning exercises & training. General physical activities during play time at school and at home are enough for their bodies.

​We also have a coaching team, headed by Coaching Coordinator, Rachael Paternoster, that operate free sessions throughout the season : (please respect that these coaches donate their time so the expectation is that athletes follow the code of conduct.  Distruptive athletes will be asked to leave.
