Wantirna LAC recommends that athletes attend training.
Training is not compulsory at Knox LAC, but it does make a difference. A mix of training across event disciplines is more beneficial than specialised single event training as it is all about personal development and enjoyment.
You play like you train
Think of it this way, other sports children play require them to turn up at least once a week for practice so that they’ll be up to the challenge come game day. The more you put in on the training track, the better you perform. Running, jumping and throwing are no different.
Athletes are encouraged to come down to Knox Park during the week to receive coaching from experienced coaches. All Knox coaches are qualified and have many years of experience in coaching. It is for anyone who wants to develop their technique and performance in particular events.
Knox LAC offers training in the full range of Track and Field events, 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.
Training days during Track and Field season are Monday and Wednesday, with some other events coaching on other days – all training is held at Knox Park Athletics Centre.
Winter cross country training is held on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. For more information, please see the Knox LAC winter cross country page.
