Thursday Trainings

After a couple of weeks of training at Casey Fields, the focus on fitness is becoming clearer. The kids are pushing themselves hard for 20 minutes which is great and now we have to build up strength and stamina to maintain the effort and speed for 30-50minutes.

Some slight changes to our training schedule this week as things start to ramp up even more. Only 3 1/2 weeks till Bendigo for the HPV teams, so we are introducing a new training session this Thursday after school. Whilst the Pushcarters will start this Thursday as well to get their hands on to the carts and start practicing and building up their strength.

Thurs 8amPush Cart training on the oval. All pushcarters are required with their helmet on an ongoing weekly basis

Thursday 3:40pm-4:15pm: Fitness Training for HPV teams. This will rotate around a range of different activities including some running, bike riding, bootcamp style and some hills training. This will happen every Thursday unless notified.

The calendar will also be updated to reflect these new dates and times.

If there are any issues with attendance at these times please contact us or keep us informed.
