The Juniors are going from strength to strength!
This weekend (May 11th & 12th) saw some great results from the Juniors that were at the Swindon County Ground for the Wiltshire Championships today.
Chloe was looking strong in the Quad Kids with a cracking 600m run
Ayla won the U17G 1500m Steeplechase
Orli was 2nd in the U17G 1500m
Maddy was 3rd in the U20L 400m
and a special mention for Veryan, who was 2nd in the SL1500m
On April 14th, Arthur came 7th in the Bath Duathlon
Open Water Swimming
This can seem a bit scarey – and not just to the Juniors! We’ve arranged a morning session in the Cotswold Water Park (Lake 32 tbc) to practice open water swimming skills. More details to follow, but put Saturday June 22nd in your diary!
For those that don’t know Lake 32, it’s a relatively shallow (6 ft?) lake in a beautiful setting about an hour from Trowbridge. With safety spotters when swimmers are out on the lake, they also host all sorts of other water sports too – well worth checking out as a family anyway.
The Juniors meet each Sunday for a session, which are usually held at Clarendon Sports Centre. Running and cycling on the school sports fields, followed by a dip in the pool. We have regular sessions at Odd Down Cycle Track in Bath too.
Here are some of the events that the Juniors can enter. If your child or teenager is interested, there’s lots of local events to enter and if they join the club, there’s a great team spirit – encouraging and supportive. Everyone starts somewhere! – Also, if you’re new to the area, come along and make some great friends.
Trisuits are provided by the club, with outgrown ones being passed on to the next. They were all new last season (2018).
