National Development Programme Camp
The second National Development Programme (NDP) camp of the year took place on Saturday March 19th at the National Indoor Athletics Centre (NIAC) in Cardiff. Since the launch of the 2021-22 NDP programme in September athletes have been engaged in two camps; strength and conditioning sessions and virtual workshops.
The March NDP Day kicked off by a rousing speech from National Coach Chris Jones. Chris provided an update on preparations for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and reflected on the journeys of athletes who had moved through the NDP to CWG nomination standards.
During the day athletes engaged in technical sessions specific to their event group; a physical preparation session focused on training prescription and training balance and an anti-doping workshop.
Moving forward into the competition season athletes will be provided with a competition opportunity within their event group.
Welsh Athletics would like to thank all the athletes and coaches that continue to engage with and support the NDP. Extended thanks also go to Cardiff Metropolitan University for use for use of the excellent facilities at NIAC.
