Training Groups

 

========================= Indoor Group

Our youngest athletes meet on a weekly basis on Friday Nights at Skerries Community Centre Hall.  Learn the basics of running, balance, agility and co-ordination through various drills and games. Children can join the Club of the year they are turning 8 (based on our waiting list). Drop to the Community Centre for 7pm and collection time is 7.55pm sharp on Friday evenings. Indoor Group usually has 8 & 9 year olds.  For training, we require all our athletes to 

  1. Wear appropriate clothing (t-shirt, shorts/leggings/tracksuit, fleece/hoodie) and runners.
  2. Bring a bottle of water.
  3. Use the bathroom before leaving home so they can fully benefit from the limited time we have per session.
  4. Not to leave the Hall unaccompanied or without the consent of a coach.

Note: usually the current under 10s move out to Astro.
