As part of the subscription, all junior members will receive coaching. Those juniors not involved in interclub teams will be coached each Saturday throughout the season and will also receive professional coaching after Christmas.
All juniors in interclub teams will receive coaching prior to Christmas as a team. The team coaching will be structured in 1 hour sessions per team commencing early October and finishing prior to Christmas, and recommencing in the new year.
A structured winter coaching programme for interested juniors has been in place over the last couple of seasons and we are planning on doing so again this season. Details will be provided at the end of the summer season.
