The Gold Coast Academy of Sport’s Athletics Program will be run in 2017 as a weekend program. The GCAS recognises that development of coaches is also a pivotal part of the success of any program, and therefore would like to offer additional support to Gold Coast based athletics coaches who would like to attend.
Athletes will be invited to participate in a comprehensive performance development program incorporating both practical skills and personal development.
This Program is aimed at providing additional benefits outside of normal club trainings.
The focus of training will be on individual skill development and basic fitness. In addition to the skills and fitness training there will be core educational sessions for the athletes to help themselves
prepare off the field and grow on a personal level. Athletes will have three practical skill sessions where they can choose two event disciplines. Athletes will also be led through a pool session.
Coaches will be led by Olympic Gold Medallist in Heptathlon, Glynis Nunn and supported by other leading coaches and athletes.
