Spring Camp

May 2021

The ETC Spring throws camp is ideal for preparing for the critical competition period of the season.

The camp is centered around athletes competing at our own Level 2 throws competition on the Monday.  Athletes will spend two days working on technical tweaks, psychology of competing, nutritional preparation for competition and also physiological preparation.   Athletes will then compete at our own level 2 competition with support from the ETC coach team and also psychologists and other support staff to try to put into action some of the learnings from the camp.

Coaches on the camp will be condustion a dedicated day of workshops with Mark Hoile of Ginger Talent to help develop coaching skills.  Coaches will be acting as team coaches at our own level 2 competition and will be given the opportunity to support a number of athletes at the event in order to hone some of the skills learnt during the previous days.

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.”
