For New Joiner Athletes aged 7 to 10 years
To accommodate the ever increasing waiting list of juvenile athletes looking to join United Striders AC, an additional Saturday morning training session is being introduced. The session will be for younger beginner athletes, minimum 7 years old and suitable up to around age 10. There will be a strong emphasis on fun, enjoyment, participation etc. whilst we cover the running / jumping / throwing elements of athletics. Coaching will be provided by our AAI certified experienced coaches, who will be assisted by a number of our older juvenile club members, who themselves are elite athletes, currently competing at national / international level and looking to gain coaching experience.The new Saturday morning training sessions will commence on 6th January 2018 and take place at the Town Park track, New Ross, from 11am to 12 noon, at a cost of €2 per session. Registration, which includes insurance, is required, at an annual cost of €20. All 7 to 10 year olds, currently on the USAC waiting list or current 7 to 10 year old members or 7 to 10 year olds interested in joining are welcome to attend these Saturday morning sessions.
