Training in the Christmas Holidays

Posted: December 27, 2012 by megsamaniac in Uncategorized

Merry Christmas!

 Just to say that during the school holidays, the junior groups are training 10 till midday on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays (with no session on Christmas Day and New Years Day).  If you have been told something different by your coach then obviously turn up at the times they’ve told you! But for any parents who aren’t sure, if you bring your child to train at 10am on Tue, Thurs or Sunday, there will be someone to coach them.

Have a relaxing Christmas break!

The track is being cleaned today, tomorrow and Friday, so we are unable to use it. The distance groups will go running on the roads, but us sprinters, long jumpers and hurdlers really need a track. So there is no sprint training tomorrow.

Also, it is the monthly Sportshall competition on Friday at Stockland Green Leisure Centre, 7.15pm till 9.45pm, for athletes in school year 6 to school year 10.
