The congress was a great success with many coaches from Australia and beyond in attenance. The congress report/DVD is available from the ATFCA National office.

The 2009 National Coaching Congress was very successfully held in Melbourne October 2 – 4. Coaches attending received a wide range of information on all areas of Track and Field and have since received the 2009 National Coaching Congress Report and DVD’s. There are some still available but unfortunately due to the large number of DVD’s and the size of the report, the cost is now $90 rather than $60 which was given to attending coaches.

The 2007 National Coaching Congress report is still also available. The report takes the form of a hard copy of all presentations along with a DVD of sessions with Didier Poppe and Mark Stewart (cost $60.00). Further to these presentations, we have put many of the practical session on a DVD that is available for purchase – these include all of Wolfgang and Didier’s presentations along with Roy Boyd, Darren Wensor and others.
