How too? What too? This is an important part to get right in any part of the sport.

A second session on planning will be held on Wednesday 31 July at 6.30-8.30pm. (This will be a repeat of the Sunday session for those unable to make the first [Sunday] session or may be a second part of planning if needed.)

The plan is to have sessions every 2 weeks on the Sunday morning. So the next (second) Sunday session will cover…. 

Strength and Conditioning for young athletes.

From that point on we will introduce the event specific session.

A Google doc registration has been set up (CLICK HERE). We would like to see as many people to these sessions as possible for the benefit of the sport moving forward. Sessions we hope will be held at St Paul’s clubrooms (Surrey Park) this is still to be confirmed.
