The Knox coaches as in previous years will be running a combined events practice day the weekend before State Combined Events. This is a great way to get event specific assistance from the coaches to assist you to be your best the weekend after.
This special coaching session is open to all athletes from U9 and up, regardless of whether you are entered for Combined events and will replace the Sunday morning throws & sprints coaching.
