ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT PATHWAY
THE WRIGHT TRACK
We are passionate about providing a clear, progressive and ultimately effective framework for talented young athletes to work through as they develop. This is outlined above through our Wright Track Athlete Development Pathway. This summarises everything we offer to young athletes at Wright Track Coaching and how they fit together to form a clear Pathway to guide them through their journey in the sport.
PLAYGROUND TO PODIUM
Our Athlete Development Pathway focuses on 5 key stages of a young athletes Journey. This starts with a inspiring a young child get involved with athletics and finishes with the very same child performing at a high-level as a senior athlete.
BRIDGING THE GAP
The main goal of this Pathway is to prepare an athlete to help them reach stage 5. Research by England Athletics in 2011 found that only 7% of top 20 ranked U15 athletes were still ranked in the top 20 for any event 10 years later. This highlights to difficultly of making the jump from a talented junior to a successful senior. Everything we do at Wright Track Coaching over the first four stages is designed to better prepare these athletes and help them to bridge the gap
