Northern Indoor Open Meeting EIS Sheffield 5th December 

rakerNewly upgraded 2C field officials Sharon Croft and Marino Rea Danilowicz travelled to the English Institute of Sport at Sheffield for the Northern athletics open meeting.

The programme of field events heavily subscribed saw all officials busy from the very beginning of the meeting to the end. Younger age groups events ran smoothly and quickly with few athletes missing rounds because of clashes with track events.

Both gained valuable experience working alongside regional and national officials. Highlight of Sharon’s officiating was leading her first major event at the High Jump and Electronic Distance Measuring (EDM) while Marino’s raking of 92 jumps on his own, one of the highly technical jobs without which long jumping and triple jumping couldn’t run on time and safely!!

This year’s LCDP programme starts in a few weeks time and we are excited about the workshops being put on based on your feedback both locally and nationally.

Any topic can be requested through the flying coach programme but a series of workshops looking at movement skills and how they underpin everything we do as coaches and leaders with the people we work with in our sessions will be offered FREE to anyone with a valid license. If you can circulate this around all your club contacts that would be greatly appreciated.

The workshop series is progressive with each event building on the content from the last and options in both the North and South of the region available on consecutive weekends.
