Track and Field Season Training

Fundamental and development training 

Fundamental and development training remains is on Thursday afternoons from 5pm to 6pm from October through to March. This training is open to all age groups. These sessions are run by volunteer level 1 coaches and therefore are free to attend. They are great to learn the basics and practice your technique.

Advanced Training

Advanced training will be on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, 5pm to 6pm from October through to March. It is restricted to u9-u16 as these athletes will extract the most value from these sessions. 

There is a fee to cover part of the cost of this program, $45 per individual or $80 per family. This cost provides you access to any training session for the rest of the season. Athletes will not be charged an extra if they choose to train twice a week. Athletes from other athletics centres are welcome to join at the full fee ($80 per individual).
