Junior Training – Please check the ClubSpark Sign-ups for details of training sessions.

We train all year round making best use of the facilities available to us, following a Summer and Winter training schedule

When outdoor light levels are sufficient we move to the Summer training plan and meet outdoors on the fields behind Etwall Leisure Centre, beyond the 3G Football pitches and Tennis Courts. Sessions follow a repeating 5 week pattern of RUN/RUN/BIKE/BIKE/TRANSITION so Juniors will need a bike and helmet for 3 out of 5 sessions.

No bike, no problem. We continue to offer a swim only session for 60 minutes to cater for anyone carrying an injury that is preventing running/cycling or unable to bring a bike!

Remember, helmets are mandatory for any bike session and should be worn at all times when riding, including to and from the session
