Training & Coaching

Weeknight training (Weekly – Thursdays)

Our Centre coaching team will hold our Thursday afternoon training sessions each week at Foxglove Oval, running through until the Christmas Break, and recommencing mid-to-late January 2019.    For this 2019-20 season, we are:

  • DOUBLING our Coaching focus with dedicated training for Younger Age Groups and Older Age Groups; each held at later times on Thursday to encourage maximum participation.
  • Bringing former NDLAC Superstar and current Commonwealth Games representative, Alysha Burnett in to the coaching team to work in partnership with Martin Smellie
  • Making Level 1 Athletics Coaching courses available for Age Managers free of charge
  • Training Junior Development Coaches in a brand-new Cadetship program formed specifically for NDLAC through collaboration with Athletics NSW, so that they can increase effectiveness of training programs

There will also be greater forward visibility of Programs for Saturday and Thursday Training – to allow anticipation and excitement to flow for athletes as they see their ability to improve and perform in pet events and experience other events.

Session times, age groups, focus events, and other details will be advised closer to the date.

Additional Training Sessions

Additional training for Centre Squads (such as Relay teams) will be provided on an ‘as-needed’ basis.
