Message on Heja 8th October 2021
Wednesday Night Skills/Training Sessions
It has become apparent that some members are carrying injuries that they do not wish to exasperate, or make matters worse, prior to Mini League Fixtures.
Therefore, as we currently have 2 members undertaking light training on Wednesday’s only. Dougie Pitt & David Warren, both work with either a coach or Rob Innes (When available)
The Club is giving all members with an injury the opportunity to participate in light training/exercises on a Wednesday evening, as this will count towards their minimum of four sessions.
Members must book in via the Heja Schedule, also indicating that they will be undertaking light training only. Pay your session fee, there will be no requirement for these members to stay for the whole session.
Yours in Sport
Tony Watson (On behalf of ML3 Committee)
