We are running a series of coaching sessions aimed at Juniors. John Mather is leading on each of the sessions which are an opportunity for Juniors new to the sport to get to grips with the basics and for more experienced Juniors to undertake some practice in a non-competitive setting. Parents are warmly welcomed to attend – and join in.
The sessions all take place at Hartsholme Park, Lincoln, starting 1.45pm and lasting for around an hour, hopefully finishing in the Café afterwards! Juniors don’t need to attend all the sessions, just come along to as many as you want to.
Upcoming dates are:
Dates in September and October to be announced
It is essential that you email beforehand to let John know you are coming – to send out more details and for map printing – please email at j.mather[AT]ntlworld.com
