JUNIOR MID-WEEK COACHING PROGRAM
Mid-week coaching is available to all registered athletes in the Under 6 to Under 17 age groups at Dunbar Park. There is no extra charge to participate in the coaching program.
Weekly Online Coaching Sign Up - Welcome to the new Online Coaching Sign Up System for weekly coaching sessions. The online system replaces the weekly sign on sheets previously found on the Noticeboard outside the Clubhouse on a Saturday morning. Pre booking is essential to help manage numbers at training sessions.
Please click here to view available Coaching Sessions and to Sign Up your athlete. Due to unforeseen circumstances coaches may need to make changes to their schedules. Therefore, it is encouraged that athletes only sign up for 1 week in advance.
As this is a new system, there may be teething problems. If you would like to provide feedback or for further enquiries please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Stages of Development Little Athletics recognises that children are not simply small scale adults. As such, Little Athletics is divided into a number of stages, with the desired outcomes for each stage providing a suitable environment for the enjoyment and development of the participant. In combination, the stages provide a smooth progression to lifelong sporting activity, whether at a competitive or social level. Please click here to view the Stages of Development.
