The DRC Juniors were busy this week!
Wednesday evening included a high jump session, with even the coaches having a sneaky go. Thursday evening was another great session with some endurance running, shot put, javelin and long jump training keeping everyone participating on track and field.
Saturday saw a great turn out of both club members and non-club members ready to try out orienteering. A massive thank you to the knowledgeable coaches and organisers from the Bristol Orienteering Klub (BOK). Participants had a brief warm up, followed by some instruction in how to read the maps and how to plan a route and then they were off! Our budding orienteers enjoyed the ‘dibbers’ and the challenge of finding the flags, and then to finish off some delicious cake (thank you to the cake makers too). If you are interested in getting involved in more Orienteering events, then either join us on Wednesday evening this week for another adult and junior appropriate orienteering event and/or please visit the BOK website here >>.
Back on the tracks, Freddie represented the DRC Juniors at the Gloucestershire AAA Track and Field Championship, silver in the 200m, fantastic!
Looking forward; continuing Wednesday and Thursday evening athletics sessions and on the horizon is our Yate athletics sessions. Just five weeks of athletics training, these sessions start at 2.30pm on Saturdays (19/05, 26/05, 02/06, 16/06 and 23/06) and will include some coaching from Jeremy, a high jump specialist coach. We are not asking for a registration form for these events so please do join us if you can, sessions will be suitable for any of our DRC Juniors, this is a great opportunity to train using some great facilities.
Have a great week.
