As we get closer to the start of the track and field season on the 5th October 2019, preseason training with the coaches at Knox LAC has begun. While training is not compulsory for little athletics, Wantirna LAC encourages athletes to attend regular training and coaching sessions when they can. Coaching is available for all ages and all events.
Normal training days during Track and Field season are Monday and Wednesday between 4.30pm and 7pm depending on the event and the coach, with some other events coaching on other days – all training is held at Knox Athletic Centre.
Training in the full range of events is provided, including: Running, Relays, Sprints (60-400m), Middle Distance (800-1500m & Cross Country), Hurdles (60-400m), Jumps (Long Triple & High Jump), Throws (Shot put, Discus, Javelin & Hammer) and Walks.
Importantly, the coaching provided at Knox LAC is free and there is no ongoing additional costs to families for coaching during the season. There is no need for athletes to bring their own equipment, (such as blocks, discuses, javelins or shotputs) as Knox LAC provides all equipment and implements for training.
For any athlete looking to improve their skill and techniques before the start of the season please contact the coaches to discuss joining training sessions.
