Juvenile Coaching

Another week of successful juvenile coaching by our coaches and helpers..
Their was a great turnout for our first day back last Thursday evening, and it was great to see so many of our regulars along with some newcomers.
We will have a training session Tuesday Evening starting at 6pm and also continue with our Thursday Evening session starting at 6pm. Both sessions are open to all juveniles.
Our goal is to improve confidence, coordination, balance, strength, timing, skill proficiency and fitness of our athletes using PLAY. We will develop and improve on your child’s gross and fine movement skills. This is also suitable for children who do not compete in XC and are preparing for the Indoor season early in 2016.

We also want to improve aerobic fitness and endurance for the cross country season. In doing so our athletes will develop leg strength and speed, but also pace awareness. The first cross country race is Sunday 4th October in Killarney.

There is some further cross country training for Juveniles over the next few weeks on Sunday @ 10:30am in Killarney. The training will be in the Demense field just beside the childrens playground. This is open to all county athletic club members.
