Sundays will be in Trinity Sportshall (beside Brewbox Coffee) from 10:00 to 11:30 as well as Fr Collins Park for middle distance athletes. Shot Putt, Hurdles, Sprints, Middle Distance as well as elements of High Jump and Long Jump will be covered.
Fridays will be in NIA on the 13th and 20th of January, 19:30-21:00. Focus at these sessions will be High Jump, Long Jump, Hurdles with time also for Sprints, Middle Distance and Shot Putt.
Wednesdays will be General Conditioning and Training in Donaghmede Park.
A philosophy of the Club is that every athlete will have a relay team if they wish to run on one. Each relay is made up of 4 athletes and some age groups will have more than one team. In order to assist coaches in selecting teams there will be relay trials at the NIA session on 20th January and again on 3rd February.
