Performance Practice #2 Set to Go!

ANB is pleased to be hosting the second of our Performance Practice sessions this weekend at the CEPS facility in Moncton. These sessions are open to all ANB members, free of charge. As well as open practice time from 10am-12noon, there will be clinics from noon-2pm.

Clinics for this session include:

Sprints clinic with Steve LeBlanc
Steve will bring his experience as a coach and his knowledge as a sports biomechanist to this session.  The clinic will focus on sprint starts and the mechanics of using starting blocks.  It will address critical elements of the start and look at drills to help develop this important skill.  There will also be an opportunity to use a Lynx ReacTime unit to assess reaction time and acceleration off the pedals.

High Jump clinic with Stéphanie Doiron and Alex Witmer
Steph brings a wealth of knowledge about her favourite event.  She is the highest female jumper in NB history, holding the outdoor provincial record at 1.78m.  Alex is a former Canadian university champion in HJ, and recently represented NB at the Jeux de la Francophonie where he finished fifth.  This session will help the athlete maximize on their abilities to achieve new personal bests and “raise the bar” in 2018.

Throws clinic with Dr. Earl Church and Caleb Jones
Earl brings a wealth of experience and knowledge.  He has many years of coaching success in all areas of athletics, but his impact here in NB has been most clearly felt in the throws.  Caleb is one of NB’s most successful throwers, and a former athlete of Earl’s.  Caleb was the Canadian champion in javelin and represented NB and Canada on the world stage.  This session will cover technique and training in all throwing events, and all competitive throwers and their coaches will be able to learn from this session.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
