On the 2nd of December, 18 athletes from across the West Wales region descended on Swansea's indoor track. This was the first of the speed events to be held within the region, focusing on developing some of the fundamental skills needed in both the short sprints and relays. The day was broken into 2 components for the athletes.
First was functional skills and drills for relays and sprints, and a functional movement/conditioning element being the second. The skills sessions were delivered by myself and Neil Wheeler, whilst Gareth Walton was on hand to pass on his knowledge with the functional movement/conditioning element.
Further sessions will be organised in 2018 with the hope of developing the skills further for the athletes involved and bringing together a more cohesive way of working across the region.
I would like to send my personal thanks to both Gareth and Neil for their work on the day, along with all parents and athletes who attended the event in Swansea.
