On Sunday 18th February athletes from West Wales engaged in the 2nd Regional Development Programme (RDP) session. With several returning faces, and some new, the athletes progressed on from the 1st workshop and solidified previously introduced skills. We were again assisted in delivery by Gareth Walton and Neil Wheeler.
Gareth built on the previous conditioning work, and spent time helping the athletes understand correct posture, stabilisation and self-awareness. This triggered constructive discussion between coaches and parents who attended on the day.
The next instalment will take place in the spring with an eye on preparation towards the outdoor season.
I would like to thank the athletes, parents, coaches, Gareth and Neil for their time and commitment to the programme.
