Limiting Numbers at Thu Night Training Sessions
After some consideration the club has taken the decision that until further notice,we will not be able to accept any new under 12 year olds at our Thu night training sessions. With the welcome increase in numbers in recent months, we feel we have reached a limit as to how many younger members we can safely supervise given our current coaching resource. It was felt that additional numbers would have a detrimental impact on both safety and on the quality of the sessions that we are able to provide.
Accordingly we will be implimenting a short grace period to allow current Thu attendees to complete a membership application, after which only recognised members will be able to participate at the Thu night track session. We would encourage parents to speak to a coach or club offical over the next couple of weeks if you have any questions.
Sunday morning sessions at Dechmont Law are currently unaffected by this policy.
We will be looking at increasing our coaching capacity for the future and invite parents and older members to get in touch if they would be interested in obtaining coaching qualifications, or simply in assisting at training and at athletics events.
Thu Night Pickup Drop off and Pick up
We would encourage all parents of younger children to remain for the duration of the session, and ideally to get involved in the activities. We realise that’s not always possible, but would ask that when dropping off children, parents make themselves known to a coach or club official before departing. This is important to make sure that we know who is present for the session and to ensure that any important announcements are not missed.
