Talented Athlete Day

14th June 2016
Five of our older students attended a Talented Athlete Day at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre last week. The topics covered included:
  • Nutrition - what and when to eat and drink to get the maximum out for your sport
  • Psychology - using visualization to enhance performance
  • Fitness testing - speed, flexibility, reaction times
  • Speed and Agility Training.
There was also a talk by Andy Thompson, an ex professional footballer, about his career. Most of the day took place on the indoor track due to the weather but at lunchtime the children went on the outside track (in the puddles) and watched some senior athletes training.
