HOW DO NEW ATHLETES FIGURE OUT WHAT EVENTS TO DO?
It’s important to know what you’re good at. Are you a super-fast runner at short distances and have a fast stride turnover? You might be good at sprints. Do you have great coordination as well as speed? You might try hurdles.
Do you have a strong upper body? You might be good at throwing events like shot put and discus. Do you have a lot of elasticity in your body? You might be a good candidate for long sprints or jumping.
As coaches, we may see something in you and suggest certain events. If you really aren’t sure, you can also try a few different events and see which you like best.
