Just wanted to highlight this squad session Graeme Woodward has just posted on the FRA home page.
It's taking place on Sunday 15th April at Mytholmroyd and is a development camp for U16 runners. Its open to any juniors that fulfill the criretia specified in the application and is essentially designed increase personal running skills & knowledge.
I was involved in this last year and it was a very positive experience for all those involved, fascinating talks, great practical exercises resulting in surprisingly immediate technical improvements and everyone leaving with good feedback and development plans. Good crack too.
Quote from the Application form -
The selection criteria for the England 14-16 Squad are designed to promote inclusion whilst still being
aspirational and relevant to high performance and are :
- Top 10 in FRA Junior Championships.
- Placed in FRA Junior Championship or BOFRA races.
- County standard XC, track or road.
- We are aware that many good fellrunners may not have had the opportunity to meet the criteria
above and will welcome applications who believe they can evidence performances that justify their
inclusion, please ask if not sure !
This is aimed at anyone racing in the U16 FRA age category this year, so although some may turn 14 during the season, if you are racing in the U14 category this is not yet relevant.
There will be detais of the U18 camp at a later date, but I wanted to make sure people were aware of this one as its not so far away.
