The Jumps Squad met at Tullamore on Saturday 13 October 2012. While turn-out of athletes was smaller than usual everyone agreed it was a successful day with a lot of quality work done by all attendees. Athletes broke off into event groups, High Jump, Long Jump and Triple Jump in the morning and worked on technical issues and general Jumps conditioning under the tutelage of Michael McDonald, Sharon Gallen and Eamon Flanagan.
In the afternoon all athletes came together for testing around power, speed and strength. Some excellent performances were posted by the athletes and this augers well for a successful winter’s conditioning.
Throughout the course of the day athletes and coaches had the opportunity to question the event coaches on a range of subjects focused on training regimes, competition preparation, weights programmes and technical knowledge for all levels of athlete and this proved immensely beneficial for those in attendance.
The next Jumps Squad will be mid-late November and any athlete who would like to be considered please contact Michael McDonald on 0044 7841465486 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. All queries will be answered.
