Coaching > Summer Track & Field

Our normal training days during Track and Field season are Monday and Wednesday, with some other events coaching on other days – all training is held at Knox Park.

We offer training in the full range of Track and Field events, including: Running, Relays, Sprints (60-400m), Middle Distance (800-1500m & Cross Country), Hurdles (60-400m), Jumps (Long Triple & High Jump), Throws (Shot put, Discus, Javelin) and Walks.

To attend training at Knox you must have a current registration as a little athlete.
If you are from another centre and want to train with Knox LAC Coaches, please contact the coach of the event you wish to train with before attending training. Places in training groups will be given to Knox LAC Athletes on a first come first served basis as a priority before athletes from other centres.

Special coaching is held for new events for various ages every year at the start of the season particularly for  U11 including Javelin, Block Starts, Hurdles, High Jump & Triple Jump. These will be scheduled early in the season. The Knox coaches run event clinics & coaching for these athletes & also older athletes who want a refresher. Please see above link for more details on these clinics.
