Erko Athletics is back in Term 2 2022 !

Monday and Tuesday Athletics is run by me, Lucy Estela. I am an accredited Athletics Australia Coach (Level 2 Advanced – Specialist in Sprints, Hurdles and Relays) and will be teaching the fundamentals of movement required to participate in athletics activities.

It will be primarily outdoors within the grounds of Erskineville Public School and aimed at creating a high participation, fun and exciting physical activity that will focus on improving skills and fitness as well as raising an awareness of athletics as a sport.

This is a 9 week short course only. Please be aware that Athletics is not a year long course and there is no preference or priority given to previous athletes.

Location Details: Erskineville Public School, Malcom Street and Erskineville Oval, 149 Mitchell Road, Erskineville 2043, NSW.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS ACTIVITY IS FOR STUDENTS FROM ERSKINEVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOL ONLY

8 WEEKS : May 2nd – June 27th 2022 COST $155

There is a public holiday on Monday June 13th and athletics will not run on that day so this is an 8 week course

Athletes will be using modified equipment in the lower playground, Erskineville Oval or, in wet weather, the Lucy Woodcock Hall to ensure both maximum participation and more importantly maximum safety to both the students and the school environment.

Athletes will be instructed in the following track and field events. Sprinting, Relays, Shot Put, Discus and Long Jump. We will also be learning Hurdles and Javelin as part of the skills sessions and plyometrics will be taught as part of the strength and fitness component. We will also have a strong focus on fitness and agility this term. Please be aware that this course is designed for athletes serious about improving their fitness, skills and competitive composure.

Athletes are expected to have a great amount of focus, determination, resilience, cooperation and commitment throughout the sessions.
