Roddy Slater is a former International Sprinter who has worked in sport & fitness for over 26 years. He leads Raw Mentoring, a mentoring service for the numerous young people who need support across Reading and the surrounding areas.
We sat down to have a chat about some of the issues young people face and how his team is supporting hundreds of kids through music and sport.
Roddy is currently a sprinting coach for Reading Athletic Club and specialises in performance training for athletes. He has coached World Junior Champs to Olympians & Para-Olympians.
We discussed his route into athletics and what it takes to be a good coach and athlete. This is a good listen for young athletes, parents, coaches and those in the education system.

RAW Health and Fitness is worth exploring for performance coaching with Roddy.
