We utilise Athletics 365, an athletics curriculum designed by our National Governing Body, England Athletics, to better support athlete development throughout their athletic journey. Each athlete will be regularly assessed and certified against this athletics curriculum. This is so they know exactly where they are against the spectrum of athletics events technically and tactically as well as including: physical preparation, psycho-behavioural and lifestyle and support. We will immerse athletes in their learning to empower them to own their development and progression in the sport.

Information about the RJT Group for Athletes and Parents:

Although ability based, we mainly cover the U13s and U15s 5:45-7pm with the exception of also taking U11s on a Tuesday night. Athletes in the U17 age group and upwards are welcome to join multidisciplinary sessions from 7-8:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The way we deliver it helps athletes to better understand why they are doing what they are doing, as well as preparing them with the correct athletic movement in which to apply more progressive training once they move into event groups. We are offering older RJT sessions to help develop multi-eventers, this will look more like combined event training for U17+.

To paint a picture, there is no way a chassis can take the loads of event group training without resulting in injury if they haven’t developed the correct movement patterns. This group aims to address the gap in fundamental movements, shapes and patterns needed for any event group training later on.

As the Athlete Development Model (ADM) is a systematic one, often we spend years unravelling and striping back to basics with older athletes, so why not get it right from the beginning?
