The National Development Programme is the second step along the performance development pathway and focuses on the top performing young athletes aged between 16-19 across Wales.
The programme is underpinned by an Athlete competency framework and follows a 2-year curriculum which aims to provide athletes and their coaches with the necessary skills, knowledge and behaviours to continue their progression in the sport of Athletics.
The opening day, a 2-day camp for the NDP takes place in Cardiff over the weekend of Saturday 29th October and Sunday 30th October.
Benefits for the athlete and coach include physical and performance behaviour profiling with practitioners and Welsh Athletics Staff, individual action plans to work on with personal coaches and access to online virtual sessions focusing on technical, performance behaviours, lifestyle and mental skills.
