WINTER THROWS TRAINING 2018
A winter throwing group organised by Glynn Boyce will be held at SA Athletics Stadium every week on Sunday mornings, starting at 9.30am, from 3 June 2018 until the end of September. Each training session will be held in the outside throwing area (behind the equipment storage sheds on the north side of the track). All five throws events will be covered through the winter. Cost will be $5 to cover the stadium training entry fee for each session attended (payable to Glynn each week).
All welcome - no booking required. This will be an opportunity to hone your throwing skills and get in some regular practice before the next summer season.
NB. There will be NO TRAINING on Sunday 5 August 2018 since SAMA will be holding its Half-Marathon Championships and 20km Walk Championships in the morning that Sunday.
All coaches associated with SAMA must be Accredited Athletics Coaches. That is, they must be registered and financial with Athletics Australia. Athletics SA only endorses accredited athletics coaches. Anyone wishing to become accredited should attend one of the courses being organised by ASA (an explanation of the different coaching levels can be found here). See the ASA website for full details of the courses.
