Vincentian Track and Field coaches will have an opportunity to be part of the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletics Association (NACAC) Athletics Coaching Series 2022.
The series, to be delivered in both Spanish and English through the Zoom platform, commences 20th January.
The Vincentians, though, will begin their English presentation on 22nd January, when NACAC’s Director of Coaches and Camps, Chester Morgan, looks at Athletic Abilities, Training Principles, and Methods of Training.
Morgan, who is Vincentian, will lecture on Energy Systems and Energy System Training on Saturday, 29th January.
Both Saturday sessions run from 4pm to 6pm.
The other English session will take place on Sunday, 6th February, from 3 to 5pm, when Peter Thompson of Great Britain will look at Periodization: Planning of Training.
The sessions in Spanish are set for 20th January, 27th January, and 3rd February, from 6 to 8pm, and will be facilitated by Diego Vela Lu and Martin Palavicini.
The idea for the series was conceptualised by Morgan and John LoFranco, the head of NACAC’s Coaching Working Group.
According to correspondence from NACAC, the series is geared at ensuring that the area remains a leader of our sport in the global environment.
The release also informed that the Coaching Series is intended to target coaches and athletes’ commissions.
“Coaches are essential to the identification and training of athletes… This is the reason that NACAC places so much emphasis on facilitating a continuous coaches education programme,” NACAC noted.
