Coaching

HDLA endeavours to provide coaching sessions for athletes focusing on technical competencies sprints , hurdles , jumps , middle distance & multi event athletes. Check out the timetable for more details. Many of the coaches are parents of past and present little athletes who have undertaken training courses under the auspices of the Australian Track & Field Coaches Association. Should you like to join our coaching ranks, please see our coaching co-ordinator Steve Denning as soon as possible.

Coaching usually starts immediately after the September school holidays, however some coaching programs run through a calendar year. Often there is no cost involved but please clarify with the coach, parents are requested to attend the coaching sessions, and to help out if needed. Most coaching activities are conducted at A.H Whaling Reserve and athletes wishing to attend MUST book in with the respective coaches at Saturday morning competition, or contact the coaches prior to attending a session. Please see the notice board or our web site for contact details of the coaches.

During this season we plan to conduct some midweek event specific event clinics with coaching staff provided by LANSW. Watch out for details of these sessions.

The Australian Track and Field Coaches Association and the Little Athletics Association of NSW regularly hold Orientation to coaching courses. These courses cover basic instruction on all events.
