As part of our ongoing partnership with the Welsh Athletics governing body, we are delighted to have recently welcomed the first cohort of Welsh athletes and coaches to Phoenix as part of their preparations for the Commonwealth Games being held in Glasgow next summer.

Following the outstanding success of the inaugural European delivery of the Phase I coaches course in Cardiff, Altis will be further building their relationship with Welsh Athletics, and will be welcoming five different event groups between December 2013 and May 2014.

National Performance Coach, Scott Simpson, explained the primary reason behind the series of visits being to “learn in a world class environment from both the coach and athlete’s perspective.” The Cardiff-based Director commented that he was delighted to be able to offer this opportunity to invest in Welsh Athletics in partnership with the “expertise” available via Altis: “Mentoring works … and this opportunity will mean our athletes get to be immersed in a World Class experience for 20 days back to back throughout a full cycle of training, with the idea being for them to be able to learn from the dedication, focus, and meticulous precision that the Altis athletes and coaches carefully embody through every element of their preparation.”
