Junior Training Schedule 2020 - 2021 Season


This season we have 2 Junior Training groups based on the skills and experience of the child as described below. There is no obligation to attend every session but the more time they spend on the water the better. If you are unsure which group to attend or are unable to make certain sessions, please discuss this with the Junior Coordinator and we will do our best to make it work.

Please remember Hi-Vis vests must be worn for all training sessions. Visit our Store to purchase a vest.
