Training

Our club philosophy is about encouraging children and young people to be fit and healthy and have fun with their friends and team-mates, whilst also having the opportunity to compete at events should they wish to. The club has a reputation for being one of the best supported and most supportive when we go to events across the country.

The club has an experienced, professional coach to support and guide the many volunteers coaches that we have.
