Almost all UK schools have Track and Field Athletics as a significant part of their summer programme. It is one of the most accessible GCSE practical options, and most schools enter their athletes in competitions. However, progress in the technical events is often limited. Dean Macey, one of Britain’s all-time greatest Decathletes, shows how teachers can make these activities exciting, stimulating and challenging. He also illustrates how effective coaching can significantly improve student progress and competitive performances.
