Odion Hillocks was the top performer in both the theoretical and practical assessments of the 10-day course, held from December 2 to 12 last year at the Arnos Vale Playing Field.

Among the topics looked at were Conditioning, Talent Identification, Sensitive Phases, Communication, Growth and Development, Training, Skills Training and Motivation.

These topics, as well as others, were delivered by facilitators Rosmund Griffith and Rawlson Morgan.(RT)
