Our Training Squads
We welcome athletes from age 8 to adult and run a number of training squads covering a variety of disciplines.
FUNdamentals & Foundation Squads
Children aged 8 to 11 are placed into one of our FUNdamentals groups, where the focus is on developing the fundamental movement skills of running, jumping and throwing. At this age, our aim is to develop these skills through games and fun activities.
From ages 11 to 13, children train within one of our Foundation groups where the focus moves towards event specific training within the three areas of running, jumping and throwing. There is still an emphasis on developing all round athletic ability and further development of the fundamental movement patterns.
