Join a Junior Open Coaching Weekend on 17-18th March 2018 at Templars Park Campsite in Maryculter, Deeside. The weekend will combine high-quality coaching with the chance for juniors to socialise with others of a similar standard from other clubs. Places are available for 24 M/W 14s and M/W16s (age class at time of booking) who are not currently in ScotJOS. Young athletes should be currently running at TD4 or 5 (Light Green courses and higher) and should be confident about running a TD4 course on their own. Evidence of competence at this level will need to be demonstrated.

The rough outline for the weekend will be:

  • Gather at Templar’s Park on Friday evening (a team planning activity will be ongoing as folk arrive). Supper and a briefing for the weekend.
  • Saturday: morning and afternoon training in Glen Dye with evening activities at Templar’s Park.
  • Sunday: morning training at Glen Dye with final activity after lunch – pick up at 3pm from Templar’s Park.

The cost for the weekend will be £85 which will include all meals, maps, transport from Maryculter to training areas, and coaches expenses. I have tried to be as accurate as possible but it may well be that we need to charge a little extra or you might get a small refund.

There may be limited accommodation for parents/carers bringing young athletes to Maryculter depending on the balance of boys/girls applying. This can be discussed once we have finalised the athlete list.

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis with a weighting depending on the size of the club, so that we get an fair spread across clubs. Book online before 5pm on Friday 24th November. 

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact Suzanne Robins-Bird on .

 

Suzanne, who is leading the weekend, is still looking for a couple more coaches/assistant coaches. You do not need to be very experienced, just qualified and enthusiastic. Suzanne is happy to help plan sessions or you can plan your own session to fit in with the overall outline for the weekend. If you would like to help out or have any further questions,  please get in touch with Suzanne Robins-Bird on .
