Help for coaches

Arin Kumar

NATIONAL long-distance coach Maciu Koroitamana conducted a clinic last week for coaches aspiring to train Fiji's future long and middle-distance runners.

The clinic is Koroitamana's project under the International Coaching Enrichment Certificate Program (ICECP).

"The feedback from the participants of the clinic was really good and motivational," he said.

"They said they appreciated the depth and knowledge of the clinic that is really important for the development of long and middle-distance coaching."

Koroitamana said the clinic was just the beginning and he had plans to stay in contact with all interested coaches and conduct as many clinics as possible.

"We need to take coaching long and middle distance athletes to a whole new level and use as much new and improved styles and techniques and training as possible for our development.

"I am really thankful to the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee for their support and Albert Miller, Ben Qumi and Samu Yavala for their assistance and I would like to conduct clinics in the West and North so that we spread the knowledge of long and middle-distance coaching."
