Youth Development Update

Hi All,

After thought and consideration as of the first Saturday in 2018, youth development trainings will now be shortened to 1 hour and will begin at 10 AM and conclude at 11 AM.  From 11am to 12pm there will be Board rescue session for those interested, whilst we are looking at also getting some boats and IRBS’s down for those who would also like to try that for an hour.

The U13’s will be joining us as they begin to transition into the group for the following season. I look forward to setting new record numbers!

For those who do iron person training in the morning with Sean, Jacko Mahney will take a gym session from 10-11am to add another element of training whilst giving a better chance to warm up and recover. Those who are unable to attend iron training or not quite confident enough will be on the beach with myself.

Look forward to seeing you all out there.

Luke
