We have an optional Beach practice which is a day for the family, the kids will practice for about an hour and a half, then spend the day together. We do this at Carpentaria State Beach.
Parking may cost extra, the athlete’s family is welcome to attend.
The athletes train in a groups based on ability to run at a specific pace for a period of time that the group is training at. Just because an athlete is in one group does not mean that we don’t expect that athlete to race at a different level. The groups are mainly for our ability to keep the athletes together.
In most cases our coaches will try to guide your child in a direction that will be most beneficial to your child performance in the sport. This is done by feedback from your child to the coach about the child’s interests.
As we get closer to the season and the schedule gets set items will be put onto the calendar. The calendar is always subject to change, but we like to keep it up to date, so it is a very good source of information about what we are planning. The calendar has a date and time stamp in the upper left hand corner, that will change if there has been an update.
At our parent meeting we will explain our program how it works and answer most if not all your questions about the program. It is important that you attend the meeting, it is not necessary to bring the kids to the parent meeting but if you don’t have a sitter then by all means do bring them.
