Preparation for training, participants should focus on hydration (this should be daily), but particularly on training days ensure they are drinking water throughout the day. Also as it is after school a piece of fruit like a banana or apple could be eaten 30 minutes prior to training to keep energy levels high.

What if it is Raining? the training sessions will continue. In the event of extreme bad weather (storms) the training may need to be adapted to accommodate. If it is viewed that it is not safe to train then we may have to cancel training at the venue. Unless you are advised always assume that training is on.

Practice Event, at the conclusion of the training we will find an event for participants to race in. This will be additional to the program and the cost,  date and timing will be advised when the event is nominated.
