Athletics Coaching and Activities in the Stratford on Avon Area



Secondary 1

Secondary school is a key environment in which to build on the fundamental principles and specific event skills associated with running, jumping and throwing, but with the tremendous pressure on PE teachers, to deliver a full and varied curriculum, there is precious little time to devote to developing both the multi skill principles and technical skills.

AStarCoaching delivers a range of athletic and fitness activities in a fun and enjoyable way that will help pupils learn and acquire the necessary underpinning fitness, movement and event specific skills required for competent performance and to support a healthy lifestyle.
