Well done to Juvenile Group ‘A’ (u12-u16 yr) on their great race walking at Monday night training! Over the next few weeks, when we are inside, we plan to increase the juvenile athletes skills by developing all the track & field events, along with increasing strength for cross country season with Group ‘A’ & ‘B’ (u10 & u11). Over the past few weeks, we have developed shot putt, discus, race walking & ball throw skills. Its great to see the fitness & interest increase amongst the athletes! For juveniles who want to develop their Long Jump skills for competitions, we plan on organizing a long jump workshop in the coming weeks at the new track in Drogheda. Details to follow.
Best of Luck to Andrew Coscoran at this weekends European Cross Country Championships in Belgrade, Serbia on Sunday. Andrew has been an inspiration to the juvenile athletes over the past few weeks, and comes down to juvenile training most weeks to offer advice & help the younger athletes with their stretches. The club made a presentation to Andrew at Monday Nights Juvenile Training – we are all looking forward to seeing him on the TV at the weekend!
