On Sunday 29th March, Canowindra Little Athletics Centre hosted a Level 1 Community Athletics Coach Course. The course was conducted by Glen Howell from the Australian Track and Field Coaches Association at Canowindra High School.
Prior to attending the course participants had to complete the Australian Sports Commission’s ‘Beginning Coaching General Principles Course’ online.
The aim for participants was to improve their ability to plan, organise and implement activities that develop the fundamental movement patterns in children.
Coaches in attendance from Canowindra Little A’s were Lisa Cartwright, Kathy Davis, Margie Duguid, Andrew Phelan, Rebecca Phelan, Matthew Rice, Mel Stanbury and Becky Thornberry. Coaches from Blayney and Orange Little Athletics Centres were also in attendance.
