Developing Young Athletes in Somerset & helping them to be the best they can be…

Combined Events Coaching

Over the last 6 years Peter has developed a very strong passion for combined events (multi-events) coaching. He has particular experience and interest in hepthalon.

Combined events athletes are  truly “awesome” and the “elite “ amongst others in our sport, competing in anything between 4 events and 10 events, over one or two days depending on age and gender. Perhaps best known for the heptathlon, 7 events over 2 days, is retired British athlete Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill DBE (More>>) who won the gold medal at the London Olympics in 2012.

In 2013 Graham Norris and Peter set up The Academy of Combined Events (ACE) to provide potential combined events athletes with the opportunity to develop a range of basic fundamental technical event skills in an enjoyable and creative environment.  We work with a range of athletes from school year 6 and above.  Our athletes have regularly achieved podium positions in the Somerset Combined Events Championships. Some have gone on to represent the County at South West Regional level, and a some have been selected to represent the County at the English Schools National Combined Events Championships. For more information, please visit the ACE website - www.aceathletics.co.uk

Peter has particular expertise in heptathlon having managed and coached an athlete to win the  senior girls English Schools Combined Events National Championships in 2016. The following year, despite sustaining an injury she was ranked within the top 10 in the UK as a senior lady and 3rd in the UK as an under 23. She then moved away to university  where she continues to improve under the guidance of a new coach.

If you are  a heptathlete looking for more focused management and training then please contact Peter to discuss your requirements further.
