This program is for Younger Juniors (7–11s) and those Competitive Juniors (12-15s) who are beginning in the sport. It is held on Friday nights at alternate locations (see above). For Younger Juniors, a parent or friend must stay during training to assist with marshalling, taking your child to the toilet or being there if they have any scrapes or bumps. If the parent can’t stay, then please place the name of the nominated person responsible for your child on the sign in sheet at registration. We will meet at the club or on the oval 5-10 minutes early if possible to register. You will then have your number placed on your hand and given a name badge. Proceed to your coach, who will organise the groups and activities for the session. At the end of the session, at around 5.30pm, we will often hold a mini duathlon / splash and dash (Parent help will be appreciated to marshal strategic spots on the course). This is followed by spot prize draws.
