Are you aged between 12 and 18 years old or an aspiring coach and likes throwing things?

Come and unlock how powerful you are in this 90 minute practical workshop with Josh Plante from Great North Coaching while throwing sandbags and medicine balls.

Cost: $20 donated to The Kokoda Youth Foundation

Sandbags are recognised by the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association as “soft resistances”. Their preference is for children, youth and beginners to use soft resistances as the precursor to any other resistance (hard resistances) such as bar bells, dumb bells, etc. two main reasons are for;
1. Safety; soft is safer than hard and
2. Motor learning.

Great way to learn the primary movements
