Cayman Island’s Athletics top brass are looking to improve the level of coaching across the island in an attempt to improve the standard of the sport across the island.

According to coaches of several prominent clubs, while the interest and talent for the sport are readily available commodities the existence of quality coaching is quite the opposite.

It is hoped that the afore mentioned scenario will have been impacted somewhat by the recent International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) level one coaches education course held at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex recently.

“If we can have more coaches to work with the younger athletes then definitely we should see some improvement in the athletes’ performance,” Mustang Track Club coach Tyrone Yen told Cayman27.

The event partially the work of the Cayman Islands Athletics Association (CIAA) focused on younger track and field athletes.

“Because we have a lot of people who want to coach, who are interested in coaching, but don’t have the education and the background to help the kids,” track and field athlete Carl Morgan said. “So we want to be able to help them properly.”
