VALE – Bryan Neighbour

Vale Bryan Raymond Neighbour

An eminent coach, a friend and mentor to a vast number of AT&FCA (Victoria) members, Bryan Neighbour passed away peacefully in his sleep during the night (1-2 July 2013).

Bryan Neighbour - L5 Coach
Thou canst not soar where he is sitting now.
Dust to the dust! but the pure spirit shall flow
Back to the burning fountain whence it came,
A portion of the Eternal . . .

Peace, peace! He is not dead, he doth not sleep,
He hath awaken’d from the dream of life . . .

Adonais (v 38,39) – PB Shelley

Funeral Prayers for Mr Bryan Raymond Neighbour were offered at St Anthony’s Catholic Church, 90 Buckley St Noble Park, on WEDNESDAY (July 10, 2013) at 11 am.

Bryan’s burial took place on THURSDAY (July 11, 2013) at 11 am at the Inverloch Cemetery, Bass Hwy, Inverloch.

ATFCA Vic 2013 Winter Workshop Series

Bryan Neighbour - L5May 2013 has seen the very successful restart of our Winter workshop series.

ATFCA’s senior presenter, Bryan Neighbour, has produced and presented an outstanding two sessions of Shot Put Coaching on Friday evenings – one held in the Mentone Athletic Club rooms in Mentone, the other in the Keilor Clubrooms a week later. Attendees were presented with coaching techniques for primary school beginners through to the elite shot put athlete, and were able to take home sufficient high quality reference material to keep them informed and busy for months, if not years.

The format will continue in June with the theme being the High Jump [detail via the Scheduled Events in the right-hand panel], and in July with the Javelin.

We encourage coaches and potential coaches from, and especially, LAV, AV, AA, and schools to attend for their professional development.

If you are an athletics official, a non-PE teacher interested in assisting at athletics, a helper at sports events, or an athlete (usually 16+) interested in learning more about your event or a new event, or ‘just’ an interested spectator, this is your chance to enhance your understanding: of a specific event, of the development of an athlete, and of athletics in general.
