I am a coach linked with Ryde Little Athletics Centre but I like to see children from all clubs and areas of life succeed in athletics. I primarily coach High Jump and Hurdles but can give general technique help for most events (especially jumps). I tend to coach just for my Little Athletics Centre but have been known to help other athletes from time to time.
My aim is to facilitate fun and interesting sessions to provide athletes with the best techniques to undertake their events safely and improve their performance, fitness and strength. I would hope I can instil a team attitude of mutual support and encouragement in an individual child’s sport to give athletes the confidence to take their skills into the school environment.
As their coach, I would hope that I can also enable young athletes to look after themselves physically, mentally and psychologically in the home environment to feed into their achievements on the field.
