East & South Wales Throws Development Day

Wednesday 13th February, 2019

The next East and South Wales Throws Foundation Day will take place on Saturday 2nd March at the National Indoor Athletics Centre, Cardiff. 

The throwing events involved will be the Discus, Shot put and an introduction to Hammer – the day will once again be centred around coaches and athletes, and the event specific activities will be run by local community athletics coaches. The day is open to U13 and U15 athletes who have 3 or more registered marks on The Power of Ten in the summer of 2018 or indoor season of 2019.

The foundation day aims to give our young athletes the opportunity to come together and develop and gain technical and physical knowledge of the event group. One of the most important areas within these Foundation Days is the development of the throws community and the coaches / future coaches and volunteers that sit within the South and East regions.

The Foundation Day is open to all coaches and parents and encourage this across all the development throws initiatives.
