Senior and junior coaching available this autumm
This season, we have managed to obtain the services of three coaches who are providing a series of training sessions though out the Autumn term
JOG activities have worked well in drawing in families and juniors for about 15 years. They provide a regular weekly opportunity for our sport which has attracted many of our current members. Recently the numbers of senior members that have found the challenges of the Badger and Fox activities have been useful to improve their navigational skills and fitness. The proportion of adult participation has noticeably increased.
However, we have found it difficult to provide beginners and improvers an appropriate level of skills training despite trying a number of incentives.
This season, we have managed to obtain the services of three coaches who are prepared to commit.
A series of training sessions throughout the Autumn term and the programme is outlined below.
The content of the Senior programme (lead by Gavin Clegg) will be determined by the standard and wishes of the participants who commit themselves to attending the course of 6 sessions for an up-front fee of £30.
The Junior programme will be led by Vikki Page who will have a set of guidelines which link into the JOG badge scheme, so it is important that the children try to attend as many as possible during the term. A fee of £30 per child (£15 for a second child) applies.
To join either of these programmes, use RaceSignUp which will provide us with the details we need to contact you.
The training will start at 1.30pm on selected Saturdays and will aim to lead into the JOG courses where appropriate. A post course analysis will follow.
Applications are invited before the AGM on 2nd September.
It is hoped that this programme can be followed up with a weekend residential training at the start of the Spring term at Huish Woods Campsite on 13/14th January 2024.
