What is the Jura Sports Athletics Academy?
Our Athletics Academy’s mission is to develop young athletes in the Terre Sainte area by learning different athletics disciplines including the three essential movements: running, jumping and throwing, in a fun and secure environment. We will practice sprints, hurdles, javelin, discus, shotput, long jump and many more! Our athletics head coach Jasper is a certified personal trainer and holds a Bachelor and Masters in Sports Science from the Universities of Loughborough and Lausanne.
