Further Foundation Development Days planned in North Wales

Thursday 29th November, 2018

Following on from the success of Welsh Athletics' Foundation High Jump and Triple Jump Development Days in South and West Wales, we are delighted to confirm the following Foundation Development Days that are planned for athletes, coaches and parents in North Wales.

Triple Jump Fundamental Skills Workshop 

These Foundation Days provide an opportunity for young athletes, parents and coaches to better understand the fundamental skills of the Triple Jump in a safe and structured environment. The session will be led by Welsh team coach Amanda Broadhurst (coach to Tom Walley). The focus age group for the sessions will be U15 and U17 athletes and their coaches, although other athletes in younger age groups are welcome to attend.

These Fundamental Skills Workshops - will be held at Deeside Athletics Centre on Saturday 8th December from 10.30 a.m to 12.30p.m.

The Triple Jump event is to be added into the Welsh Junior Championships next year for u15 athletes by invitation only, with a maximum approach distance of 10 metres. Athletes will only be invited to compete if they attend the Triple Jump Fundamental Skills Workshops.

In addition depending on the response and success of the day we will be looking at including an U15 event (by invitation only) in the North Wales Indoor Championships in January.
