As part of the club’s re-emergence from lockdown restrictions, we continue to offer a weekly session for junior athletes (8-16). The Club had intended establishing a dedicated Friday evening Juniors session inside Craigswood Sports Centre but there now appears to have been a booking for this slot by another club. We are hopeful we can get a resolution and are talking to Xcite about this now. I will however, at least, shortly have access t0 the equipment and resources stored at Craigswood .
Meantime, the sessions are now being held outside the Civic Centre, Livingston each Friday – starting at 7.00 p.m. ( to 8.00). This is a public space so added care is needed by all.
Participants and responsible guardians should be there 6.45 for a 7.00 pm start. We aim to finish by 8.00pm. Juniors should want to be there and be prepared to join in, behave (!) and do their best – and follow instructions for their guidance and safety.
Participants should be between 8 and 16 and members of the club. If numbers continue as they are access may have to be denied to non-members. New people are welcome to come and try a couple of sessions ( as they are with the adults) and see how they like it – if they want to keep coming they will need to join the club. Membership is not expensive and family memberships offer good value – see elsewhere on the site for details.
The session will include movement drills, warm up games, fitness runs and/or jumps and throws then usually a team relay. Juniors can interact under current rules but adults should remain at a social distance. Sanitiser is provided and any equipment used is provided sanitised and is my responsibility.
While Craigswood is still restricted I cannot access all equipment so it is more informal and improvised – but still planned to deliver fundamentals, fitness and fun.
It is vital I know who is coming and I don’t want to turn anyone away on the night – so let me know via the club Facebook page or by email to email@example.com
Thanks – Martin
