Rosanna coaching philosophy 

 

The primary focus of our junior training is skill development. Excellence comes from adding power to highly developed skills. In junior athletics the focus is on mastering the required skills. As adolescence arrives, power can be added to that skill base. Power plus skill will equal that person’s maximum level of performance. It is all about helping that person achieve their best. That is our aim and it is the job of the coach to get this done whilst at the same time making it fun.

 

Coaches and parents of athletes at Rosanna will be guided by the following principles regarding the development of our athletes:

 

  • All athletes will always be encouraged to have fun at training and at competition sessions

  • All athletes will be positively encouraged at all times

  • Coaches and parents will set achievable objectives for athletes
