We hope to bring in specialist coaching knowledge to Develop Hammer Coaches & Athletes during this season. We will bring you more details on this towards the end of the year.
Most athletes / coaches are extremely efficient in replying to emails. I would expect that everyone should be like this. This greatly assists in the organisation and planning for event days such as the above.
I look forward to your reply and seeing you on one or more of the above dates.
