Under-15 & Under-17 Training Group
This training group is for under 15 and under 17 athletes (school years 8, 9 and 10) who want to do a mix of sprinting, middle distance running and field events. Sessions are on a Tue and Thu from 6.30pm to 8.00pm with an optional field events training session on Saturday morning from 10.00am to 11.30am.
During the first 30 minutes of each session the group will practice field event skills or work on core strength, agility and balance. The final hour of the session will be a full warm-up, running session and cool down. One of the weekday running sessions is a sprint session and the other is a middle distance session. Each is rotated between Tue and Thu so that athletes who only attend one session per week still get a mix of sprinting and middle distance training.
The group also inducts athletes new to the club who may not be familiar with structured warm ups and dynamic stretching routines. These athletes may then progress to specialist middle distance or sprinting groups within the club.
