Coaches complete training of trainers in athletics for children

City of Praia, 08 Nov (Inforpress) – Eleven technicians concluded today the third day of the training of trainers provided by the International Athletics Federation, with the aim of training and providing trainees with advanced tools for the “kids atletics” program.

Daniel Leandro, trainer, told the press during the last session, which runs until 5pm, at the National Stadium, in the City of Praia, that version 2.0 of the program involves the qualification of technicians with the purpose of helping in the implementation of the project

In his opinion, this is an “extremely important” programme, as it allows the sport and the children’s skills to be developed, with the possibility of “having more qualified athletes with sporting results” in the near future.

“This focus on children makes perfect sense, we want to demystify the image that athletics is all about running. When children come to the stadium to practise athletics through ‘kids athletics’, they realise that they can play, run, jump and throw,” he explained, pointing out that Cabo Verde has trained 48 coaches in the last ten years.
