Multi-Events Coach Network Day


Athletics Ireland coaching and development team are delighted to be hosting a Multi-Events Coach Network day in TUS Athlone on May 7th. Registration for this one day event can be found here.

This will be a day for coaches to learn from experts in the areas of multi-events, sprints & hurdles, skill acquisition, and coaching, while interacting with their coaching peers to share ideas, experiences, and solutions. The day will feature presentations, practical workshops, and opportunities to interact and engage with Laura Turner-Alleyne, Dr. Phil Kearney, and other experienced coaches in these disciplines.

Further details on both presenters below, and topics on the flyer.

  • Laura Turner-Alleyne will lead a multi-events workshop - both theory and practical, focusing on speed for the multi-events, and a hurdles focused practical session. Laura is an Olympian (100m) who now coaches athletes in the multi-events (Holly Mills - 4th at World Indoors 2022), as well as sprints and hurdles specialists at West London Track & Field.
  • Dr. Phil Kearney will deliver workshops on both Short and Long term athlete development, focusing on skill acquisition and sequencing of drills, and maturation in young athletes. Phil is a former decathlete who now lectures in Skill Acquisition, Coaching and Performance in UL.

This network day will be beneficial to coaches across all event groups, so please share widely with coaches in your club and coaching community.
