Dear all,

Next Sunday morning training session is this weekend (11 November) at 10.30hrs. We are meeting at the Bush track for the usual session of sprints, Jumps and Throws. Endurance training will not take place due to Leinster Championships taking place.

Bernard McAree is back to look after the jumps group, Maria for the hurdlers and Sprinters and I will coach the throwers. Progress is already visible with athletes who have attended training since the start of September,  but it’s not too late to get into shape for next season.

The session is for all athletes U13 and over (2019 Season) and of course any coaches. The contribution is 2 euro per athlete. Please bring appropriate clothes and water.

Please Note:

We are also planning two indoor sessions in the NIA in Abbotstown on the 8th of December and 5th of January both Saturdays from 10 – 12 am. There will be several training groups on the day. Please register by e-mailing the athletes name, age category (2019 season) and chosen training group to me. You can use the attached spreadsheet to do so. An athlete will have to be U12 age category, in the 2019 season, or above and registered with the AAI to participate in the sessions. Coaches are welcome to help out or observe. I would appreciate if each club would nominate a contact person in regard to this event.

We have arranged coaches to cover Sprints, Hurdles, Distance, LJ, HJ and Shot. There will also be a relay part to the session. Groups will be decided closer to the day when we know how many are attending what disciplines. The sessions are in particular geared towards participation in the indoor championships both Leinster and National.

We will seek a contribution from each athlete of 5 Euro for the attendance of one session. Coaches are going free. You will have to make your own way to the venue.

More info in the next couple of weeks.

Best Regards
