Great Britain’s greatest decathlete of recent years delivers industry leading coaching in a unique and engaging way. At the core of Dean’s programme is how determination and laughter combine to create the greatest learning environment.
All Athletic events are covered in Dean’s pursuit of the all-round athlete. His unrivalled technical knowledge when coupled with his breath-taking demonstrations inspire extraordinary progress. In addition, the athletic foundations of running, jumping and throwing, which are at the heart of all sports, are developed alongside the equally important personal behaviours of a growth mindset, originality, leadership and determination.
Dean Macey was an international decathlete for more than a decade. His first major triumph was a silver medal at the 1999 World Championships, which helped win him the BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award. He went on to win Gold in the Commonwealth Games Decathlon, two World Championship medals and came fourth in two Olympic Games.
“Being the best you can be isn’t down to genetics, it’s a simple decision we all have to make. The earlier we make it, the better we can become.
At the Sedbergh courses we do our best to make that journey as smooth and enjoyable as possible whilst installing important fundamentals along the way.”
“I just wanted to let the organisers of the summer activity courses know, that my Son really enjoyed the athletics course last week, he has been showing us all the warm up drills and stretches he learnt, and has not stopped talking about it since last week. He enjoyed it that much, that he even had a few tears in his eyes at the end of the course, because he didn’t want it to end.”
