Local sports enthusiast and coach Ake Hosea-Winterflood is heading to the Gold Coast to take part in a level three athletics coaching course which means that her ANZ Tamariki Sports Programme scheduled to start today has been postponed until later in the year.

Hosea will be taking part in an IAAF level three course for jumps including long jump, triple jump, pole vault and high jump.

“It is always nice to come home with new skills to teach our athletes and other interested persons,” says the dedicated coach.

Hosea hopes to run a workshop to share her skills on her return from the course and she currently holds a level three coaching certificate in sprints and hurdles, level one in lecturer of athletics and school projects and a level one coaching certificate in swimming.

Those children that look forward to Hosea’s sports programmes are being encouraged to keep up with your exercise and when Hosea returns – she will run her fun and education programme again.
