Phil Hadley Named Sprint and Hurdles Event Group Coach

Athletics Nova Scotia is excited to name Phillip Hadley as our new Event Group Coach for Sprints and Hurdles.

With over 20 years of coaching experience both in the United States and Canada, including previous Provincial Team experience, Phillip’s knowledge of the sport ranges across nearly all event groups, carrying certifications in sprints/hurdles, endurance, and jumps. Most recently, Phillip completed the World Athletics Academy Elite Coach Course in sprints and hurdles in 2020, certifying him to work with athletes at the highest levels of the sport.

“Phillip has done a fantastic job of building both the track and field and cross country programs at King’s Edgehill School since returning back to Nova Scotia in 2014. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience across multiple event groups, as well as a strong connection to the School Sport system in the province that will make Phillip a great asset to our organization.” - Kirk Jessome, Technical Director
