'Beginning Athletics - What to teach and coach' by Johnson & Neuff

by Neuff

This is an absolute foundation for athletics coaching and will be invaluable to beginning teachers, coaches and volunteer helpers.  Written by a past UK national coach this book assumes nothing.  It shows how to teach walking, running, jumping and throwing from the basics up.  The format is predominately in photocopiable work cards covering:

  • what skill to teach
  • how to organise it
  • what to look for.

Also very useful for GCSE or A level sports science courses in school. It really is a bible for athletics teaching.

Also available as an E Book -
