Euro Champs


On the 6th – 10th July 2016, the FCN will be delivering coaching workshops at the European Athletics Championships in partnership with SPAR International, the event?s main sponsor.

The workshops will take place before and after the Championship events inside the 1928 Olympic Stadium based in the heart of Amsterdam, Netherlands, and will allow children and parents to take part in a range of track & field events.


The SPARK Kids Athletics Park is a reflection of SPAR’s aim to bring athletics to children of all ages. At the various sporting events that SPAR sponsors, a number of SPARK Kids Athletics Park activities are organised, inviting children to participate in different athletics disciplines involving running, throwing and jumping.? At the European Athletics Champions in Amsterdam in July, SPARK will once again allow our young athletes to showcase their sporting skills.


For this year?s event, founder of the FCN and UK based Track & Field Coach Vicky, has been brought in to bring some educational elements to SPARK.? Vicky has created a number of workshops aimed at educating parents and coaches about the important of a holistic approach to coaching children.? She will be delivering the sessions alongside her assistant coach who she has worked with for a number of years, James, who also has many years? experience of coaching young athletes.


?I am really excited to be part of such a fantastic project and to be working alongside SPAR during the European Championships.? We are looking forward to showcasing track & field in such a unique way and hopefully inspiring children to take part in sport for many years to come? and we may even find the next Dafne Schippers!?
