Season Training

Weekly training is provided during the summer Track & Field Season (October – March) free of charge to all registered financial members. Training is held at the track.

As the coaching provided is more event specific, it is generally available only for the U/8 age group and above. Younger age groups are provided additional training as part of the modified On Track program at competition meets on Saturdays.

Parents must be in attendance at training sessions.

Our coaches are volunteering their time to support and benefit your children, and your help to assist during training sessions is welcome. All coaches have a current WWC card.

The typical training format is Warm-up, Event Training and Warm-down. Athletes should bring a water bottle, sun protection and suitable running clothing.

A training session may be cancelled due to inclement weather, i.e. either extreme heat or rain or both! Advance notice of training cancellation will be advised on our website and Facebook site wherever possible. Please contact our training co-ordinator Paulo Lay on 0407 094 320 to confirm if training will be held on any scheduled day.
