We understand that it may not be possible to attend all these training sessions but if our competing athletes could attend as many as possible it will be of great benefit to your child and their coaches.
Warm clothing for training in Kilbogget
The temperature has certainly dropped over the last number of days therefore we would like to remind our athletes to dress appropriately for training outside.
Athletes should wear plenty of layers, which can be taken off during training and put on again afterwards. Thermal vests and thermal leggings are recommended. Gloves and a head bandana or woolly hat would be very beneficial. NO shorts or short sleeved tops should be worn during winter training.
Please also ensure that any clothing that your child can remove is labelled, as inevitably coats, jackets and hoodies are left behind.
... at Holy Child Community School, Pearse Street, Sallynoggin in the School's PE Hall at the back of the school.
We have two sessions of 45 minutes each (6.45pm-7.30pm and 7.30pm-8.15pm). Please ensure that your child arrives promptly for training, so that they can get the most benefit out of these slightly shorter sessions.
If your child is competing in Cross Country, they are very welcome to continue to train in Kilbogget on Wednesday evenings if they prefer, and will be accommodated in another age group.
We appreciate that there may be siblings training in Kilbogget and Sallynoggin at the same time, which may create logistics difficulties for parents, so we can make allowances for those siblings who wish to join indoors with their brother/sister.
Training in Kilbogget is on and around the rugby pitches by the container.
Please can we ask our athletes to bring a high viz vest to wear at training if they have one at home. We do have a small supply of vests in the container, but it would help greatly if athletes could bring their own where possible, they do make a big difference!
