The Development Squad is the group for young athletes competing at a local level or young sports people looking to develop their running skills. The training programs, held during school term times only, can be used as a stepping stone to the Youth Squad or to improve your attributes for another sport. The focus is on improving fundamental skills with a fun aspect to them.

When you pay monthly you get access to coaching at our Youth Squad sessions plus take advantage of discounts on our 1:1 sessions and Strength and Conditioning sessions and Sports Massage Therapy with our affiliated partner 'Rob Thickpenny Performance Coaching'
