This Support Day is part of the Excelsior Athletic Development Club
Head coach and owner James Marshall is the author of “Training Young Athletes” and an expert on long term athlete development.
He set up the Athletic Development Club to help young people from all backgrounds gain access to expert advice, locally.
He is using his experience of coaching Olympians, Paralympians and International competitors with local children. He is designing the sessions so that the club members are set up for long term success, rather than short term impact and risking injury, burnout and disillusionment with sport.
James was on the England Senior Karate squad for 3 years, and competed in European and World Championships.
Places limited to assure quality
There are limited places, so please book in advance by Friday 2nd March 2018 by emailing James at James@excelsiorgroup.co.uk
4 hours of expert advice costs only £25 (£15 for Excelsior ADC members).
Excelsior is committed to improving the performance of all young athletes and helping them reach their potential in a safe and effective manner.

The access to expert advice on training and coaching in the STS has been extremely beneficial when guiding Helen (15) through different stages of her physical development. Time is very precious and especially as busy parents of even busier teenagers, we need all the help we can get. As well as following the programme, it has been really useful to dip into certain topics as and when situations occur. Advice on how to prevent and counteract knee problems was certainly helpful when Helen started complaining that ‘her knees were hurting’ directly after competitions.
