C Group and Juniors

Posted on | April 9, 2018 | No Comments

This year we have scheduled a monthly training night for our Cat5 C group and our Juniors. We felt this would allow us to keep tuesday nights focused on the G-tour training races and still be able to spend time focusing on coaching skills/drills without requiring anyone to miss a race opportunity.

If you are interested in helping with these training nights please contact me so we can discuss it.

Thank you
Troy Rutherford
