being your best ... coaching at the sharks
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.
Springwood Sharks has a mission to ensure our athletes can 'be their best'.
We have a number of qualified coaches that are involved in the weekly competition days (just look for the green shirts).
We also have a coaching team that operate free sessions on weekdays including :
Tracy Tuia - head coach
Gavin Hunter - sprints coach
We also have an arrangement with coaches offering reduced fees training including:
Emily Hancock - Junior Sprint Squad
Tony Baker - Level 4 middle and long distance coach
