TRAINING SQUAD

FUNdamentals (Alex)

Important squad announcement

Nothing to report.

In this group athletes are taught the fundamental skills and techniques needed for athletic disciplines. We cover the basic techniques for all track and field events, apart from hammer throw and pole vault. This allows us to keep our sessions varied and engaging, whilst providing them with a strong grounding for further development in their chosen event.
