Winter Training is upon us!

Well its that time of year again when we get up off our lazy backsides and start back training for the long,hard season ahead.The finishing touch's are being put to everyones training programs and all training venues etc will be finalised in the next day or two.We will be starting back next Tuesday September 6th with the group split in two this season with the U13-U16s and the U16s+ in a venue to be confirmed.There is also a start of year fitness test being organised so check back here tommorow for details.

   One of the most used words for the season ahead will be "organisation".Everyone needs to be organised for the start of winter training with the following items now being compulsory due to the inability of some people to be organised.
1.Training runners-All other footwear is banned from being worn to training and competitions.
2.Running tights-For all outdoor training.
3.Running top baselayer-Longsleeve for all outdoor training.
5.Light Hoody-For all outdoor training.
6.Rain Jacket-For all outdoor training.
7.Hat & Gloves-For all outdoor training.
9.Towel & Spare clothes.
10.Drink & Recovery food.

Athletes are also advised to go to the doctor and get a check up to make sure they are 100% before they start back.So get cracking boys and girls as if you dont have the above ten items you will not be allowed to train!
