There are 2 purposes of this page;
1 To provide some basic training tips for juniors
2 To provide links to coaching articles or websites for the benefit of our coaches (although some parents or older juniors might also find them helpful)
We hope to develop this page over a period of time. Please let Andy know if you find any articles or websites that might be of interest.
1 Basic training tip 1 – Kit for Winter Months
To get things started, here is some advice on what kit juniors should wear during the winter months…
Juniors should wear clothing appropriate for the weather & temperature. We recommend
- tracksuit trousers or leggings (shorts no longer appropriate)
- hat or buff
- hoody or fleece
- waterproof jacket (preferably high viz)
Please bring a drink and any medication your child may need
If training on the astro, running trainers, trail running or fell shoes are all OK. No spiked shoes.
For coaches – useful websites & coaching articles
