15/10/2021 00:00, In Blog /

Sunday, October 10th saw the return of the Welsh Athletics Regional Development Programme. Regional Days were held across the 4 regions of Wales in each event group (Speed, Endurance, Throws, and Jumps).

The sessions were a mix of technical work related to an individual event group and Physical Preparation. In the week leading into the Regional Days, there was an Instagram engagement session focusing on long-term athlete development and what it takes to progress from being a junior to a senior athlete.

“Sunday saw the welcome return of the Regional Development Programme. It was great to see athletes and coaches enjoying the sessions and learning together"                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Liz Davies (Endurance Talent Development)

“The return of the Regional Development Programme marked the beginning of what we hope to be an ever-evolving collaborative and inclusive approach to supporting the development of athletes and coaches across Wales”
