NCTC Junior Member Information 2018

Written by David Martin on . Posted in News

 

Hi everyone, if we haven’t met, my name is Janine Kaye and I am the Juniors Coach at NCTC. I wanted to reach out to let you know some information specific to our juniors for the coming season.

Below is an explanation of the sessions available to the different ages and abilities of juniors we have as members. Please note that juniors aged 12 – 18 tears of age (as of 31st December 2017) are considered Competitive Juniors and are welcome to attend any of the adult sessions we have on offer. Check the club website and calendar for more information on the sessions available.

 

JUNIOR TRAINING BLOCKS:

All juniors aged 7-15 are encouraged to sign up for our next block of Friday night junior training starting on the 27th October and running for 6 weeks until the 8th December 2017. The 2nd Block starts on 16th February 2018 until 23rd March 2018.  The program cost is $60 (or $100 if you sign up for both blocks). More information can be found here, including the link to register: http://northcoasttriclub.org.au/juniors/juniors-training/

We alternate locations between Hillary’s marina and Whitford’s Nodes over the 6 weeks. At Hillary’s, all age groups participate in ocean swimming and beach running. At Whitford’s Nodes, the younger juniors work on their running and bike skills with me, while the older juniors (11+) develop their cycling with Kevin Chua. These sessions have a play based undertone and focus on skill development and confidence building while having FUN with your peers. Help from parents is encouraged and very much appreciated.

 

SWIMMING:

Monday- We offer a junior only swim session on Monday nights at Arena at 6pm in the 25m pool coached by myself. This session is aimed at juniors swimming at level 8 (in school swimming levels) and above. We work on stroke development, technique and swim fitness, and cover distances from 1.2km -2km depending on ability. We usually bre break for Christmas but will recommence shortly after as this session will be provided year round.  At present, this session is full but please let me know if you are interested in being added to the wait list.

Wednesday – Juniors who are level 9 and above can attend the Wednesday night 6.30pm session at Craigie. This is a great option for those who cannot attend the Monday night session or as a second session for the week to improve swim fitness.

There are 2 sessions on Wednesday’s; one inside in the 25m pool with Pippa working on technique and swim fitness (participants should be able to complete 1.5km of swimming in total over the hour) and outside with me in the 50m pool working on pacing, speed and endurance. Most of the juniors swim inside with Pippa, but I do have some that attend outside with me that are confidently swimming over 2km and are consistently holding faster than 2min/100m pace for the session.

For the Wednesday night swims, you just turn up and introduce yourself to the coach. All swim sessions are $10 payable to the coach on pool deck (plus pool entry at the gate) or you can purchase a session card, which is $80 for 20 credits (2 credits for a swim, 1 for a run).

 

RUNNING:

Please check the calendar and Newsletter for the latest run session venues and times as these may change.

But the clubs usual sessions are:

Tuesday  – The club offers a Tempo session, which is coached by Mark Bosch or Janine Kaye and is open to all adults and any juniors 12+ wishing to improve their running. Distances covered would be 5+km.

Thursday- This is a threshold interval-based session and is available for ALL junior members of any age who are keen to improve their running technique, confidence and speed. Distances covered will start from 3km but will be based on run fitness.

More advanced junior runners are encouraged to join the concurrent session with Mike Bosch that is aimed at a performance improvement level.

Run sessions are $5. Purchasing a session card is encouraged to reduce cash handling for our coaches (1 credit for a run). No need to book, just turn up.

 

CYCLING:

Cycling is the one thing we don’t encourage younger juniors to join in with adults for due to safety reasons, and also because the sessions are guided but not coached. Older juniors who are competent and confident cyclists are welcome to join the adult sessions.

Kevin is our main juniors cycle coach offers an invitation only ride on Saturday mornings with the juniors and beginner adult group. The group rides around 30km while working on building road cycling skills, confidence and fitness. Kevin needs to assess all juniors wishing to attend to ensure they are ready and safe to participate. He can do that during the 6-week training block or independently.  Let me know if you have any questions regarding this or would like Kevin’s contact details.

 

AQUATHLONS:

The club hold Aquathlons at Sorrento surf club on (roughly) alternate Friday nights over the season that juniors aged 12+ can participate in. The course can vary but it is generally a 600m swim and a 3.2km run. The club website has the dates listed on the calendar. Entry is $5 for juniors and it’s a fun social night for the whole family. You can even use it for an easy dinner and buy a great burger from the club BBQ!

 

HAVE A GO TRIATHLON:

NCTC hosts a SunSmart Kids Triathlon on Sunday the 25th February 2018, at Craigie Leisure Centre.

This event is open to all children aged 7 – 15 years old (as of 31st December 2017) who enjoy swimming, cycling and / or running and would love an opportunity to try a triathlon either by themselves or with friends in a team. The swim leg is in the pool and the bike and run is at the back of the leisure centre on a restricted service road.

Keep an eye on the website for more information and how to register which is coming soon!

 

OTHER STUFF:

 Updates: Be sure to sign up for the weekly updates on the front page of our website, http://northcoasttriclub.org.au, and also check out the calendar for all the important dates in the club, http://northcoasttriclub.org.au/calendar/

Training cards: can be purchased here: https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=15483

Folks with the road works starting on Marmion & Hepburn/Whitfords we are working up some changes to the routes. We have a new plan for tomorrows Sacred Hills ride so ensure you are at the briefing 5:45am to be given the new route details.

Saturday 29th Oct Power Station Ride

Written by David Martin on . Posted in News

As per the weekly update Stuart cannot lead this group ride. I am happy to lead the ride but I do not want to ride the 90km from Sorrento and back so I propose two start locations. I plan to be at Joondalup Maccas for a 7AM start and if the Sorrento starters leave at 6:30 (as scheduled) then we can re-group at Ziatas and Spence junction at 7:30. Do the power station TT and meet back at Ziatas and Spence then head back to our respective start points.
The Sorrento ride works out at about 85km.
The Joondalup ride works out at about 50-55km
I have created a poll on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/northcoasttriclub/permalink/1293579750692194/) to record your start location so please select your start point. I may touch base with a few of the Sorrento starters to ensure we are coordinated to meet up. See you Saturday morning!

NCTC Yearbook 2015/16

During our end of season party we announced that the NCTC Yearbook 2015/16 edition was going to be a digital distribution affair. At the dinner we presented a copy of the book for each table and we sent out notification that it was available on the Sunday. Having the book in a digital fashion allowed us to offer edits before it was finalised and I can now report that the two edits are in and the year book is now final and available on the Year Books Page. So grab your copy now! A big thanks to Martin Flaig for producing this years edition.

Calling All Members
