New Training Aids

Ten of our coaches recently attended the physical preparation course organised by Scottish Athletics at Scotstoun Stadium.  The cost of the course was met by a grant from the Christina Gould Trust to which we are very grateful.

There was also money put aside to purchase licenses for the movement dynamics coaching software which featured on the course.

Last week, thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, McKnight Financial the club purchased three new Samsung Tablets which can be used by any of our coaches.

We're very grateful to Graham for his continued support.  Without his involvement with the club we would be unable to fund a project like this.

Initially, everyone who would like to view the extensive video library can take a tablet home for a month for some home study.  When the tablets are returned, they'll be held by three of the coaching groups who can make use of the additional software for super slow motion video analysis.

Each tablet now has a copy of Coaches Eye installed.  This will allow coaches to analyse individual movement and technical ability.  These tools are especially useful for jumps, hurdles and throwing events.

If you would like to have access to either the movement dynamics library or the coaches eye application, let me know and I'll add you to a short waiting list.
