Winter Camp

1st, 2nd & 3rd November 2019

The ETC winter throws camp is designed to follow on from our spring event and transition into the heavy winter work that is required in to properly maximise the opportunity that few months without competition provides.

The key focus areas for the camp are geared towards the off-season.  A greater level of attention will be placed upon physical prep in terms of practical activity and theory with a combination of classroom, Olympic lifting, agility, speed, coordination and power development sessions.

As well as a significantly increased proportion of the camp dedicated to physical prep, there will be an equal amount of time allocated to developing technique in “all-indoor” throwing sessions.

Coaches and athletes will benefit from sessions on bio-mechanics, nutrition, stress, arousal, coping mechanisms, planning, physiology and enhanced observation and intervention skills.

Testimonials

” A camp that finally allows coaches and athletes to interact, in a specialist, high quality training environment, bringing together many of the country’s best young throwers. The course adopted a practical led approach, rather than a lecture and literature led approach, but at the same time, managed to strike the ‘right’ balance between knowledge transfer and learning. A fun, open and inclusive environment”

Rob S. 2019 Spring Camp Coach Attendee

“The best part was the level of coaching with the attention to detail in drills, techniques and aspects of training. Also the International athlete talks was interesting and inspiring. I loved the variety and the mix of learning opportunities.”

Lucy J. 2019 Spring Camp Athlete Attendee

“The best parts for me was watching and learning from experienced coaches. Picking up numerous coaching tips, new screening tests, movement skills etc… Most importantly seeing the improvements in the athletes in such a short window and also the fun they were all having. Hopefully creating a good network with other coaches so that I can tap into their experiences and vice versa. And finally seeing that the throws community in the UK has lots and lots of potential all the way from coaches to athletes.”
