Coach & Athlete Programmes

Programme Dates 2017/2018

Please note that the Autumn/Winter activity has now concluded to make way for the busy Spring and Summer season. A new calendar will be available from October 2018 for the 2018/2019 Autumn/Winter delivery period. 

Thank you to all coaches, parents and athletes for their attendance at the various event group initiatives that have taken place. Over the Winter we saw a record number of athletes and parents supporting the development of our systems. A special thank you to personal coaches and delivery teams for your commitment throughout.

We look forward to seeing you all during what will prove to be another busy season.

Good luck from all of us,
