Junior Training Session

On arrival (at 7.15) jog 2-3 laps of the track to warm up then gather at usual in-track area to register and do warm up drills and games. Session may then split, depending on numbers, into under 12 and 12 and over. Aiming to finish around 8.15 – usually with a relay or straight race – warm down laps to follow if desired. Will also include non running things – like throws , long jumps – and the occasional bleep test !
Committee have designated  these sessions will be chargeable to members at £2.00 (2021) ( potential new members are free for two weeks deciding if it’s for them and then chargeable thereafter as signed up members) – money raised will be re-invested in track hire, junior activities and event entries.
