NI RELAY DEVELOPMENT SQUADBringing speed athletes & their coaches together to learn and improve
The NI Relay Squads are both an opportunity for athletes to learn key relay skills but as a major coach development event. A typical squad session involves two streams of activity, one focused around athletes and another around coaches. A typical relay squad event will begin with some basic sprint training theory and then feature an “Open Workout”, where a coach and athlete demonstrate what a real workout may look like for a senior performance athlete. The afternoon session usually focuses around both the theoretical and practical aspects of relay training and includes an opportunity for coaches and athletes to work together to improve their skills.
