Open to all Junior members, the Saturday morning Club is included in your annual membership fee and designed to be fun and enjoyable for all abilities.
This year the Club has had to consider additional factors resulting from the difficult pandemic year. The balance of offering our sessions to Junior members and balancing the risks has been at the forefront of our decision making, including following both the Government ‘Roadmap out of Lock-down’ and British Cycling guidance.
The Saturday Junior Club will be limited to just 15 riders for each session and there will be five blocks of courses on Saturday afternoons throughout the year. However, Junior members can only book one 4-week course this year.
In-order to maximise the number of opportunities to as many Junior members as possible, we will be running Saturday afternoon coaching courses in blocks of 4-weeks, with 5 courses available during 2021.
The dates are as follows:
Course 1 – Saturday 1st May to Saturday 22nd May 2021 – BOOK NOW
Course 2 – Saturday 29th May to Saturday 19th June 2021- BOOK NOW
Course 3 – Saturday 26th June to Saturday 17th July 2021- BOOK NOW
Course 4 – Saturday 24th July to Saturday 14th August 2021- BOOK NOW
Course 5 – Saturday 21st August to Saturday 18th September 2021 (Saturday 4th Sept is the BFCC race event, so no coaching session that day). – BOOK NOW
It is compulsory for members to book their course to avoid disappointment.
Meeting Point and Pandemic guidance
The Saturday Junior Club starts at 2pm and finishes at 4pm. Due to increased safety measures and avoiding large groups clashing in public areas, the meeting point AND collection point will be at our training area. We ask that ONLY one parent or guardian brings/collects the rider/s and prevailing responsible social distancing rules apply at all times.
Spectators – are not permitted, unless by exception or the rider has a disability. The lead coach on the day will make such discretionary decisions and that decision is final.
We advise Parents & Riders to meet the coaches at the training area for 1.45pm – please allow for a 10-minute walk to the training area from the carpark, which is located halfway up the fire road hill leading to the start of the single red route track -– download advice and location map. Equally, please be prompt and collect your child/ren at 4pm from the training area.
Please ensure that you bring snacks, plenty to drink and appropriate clothing for our great British weather – good or bad.
Parental Consent and GDPR
All Juniors will be required to obtain and complete our new Parental Consent & GDPR form. This is an annual requirement, and we request all parents to download the form, complete and hand-in to the coaching team.
Free trial – Unfortunately, free trial session for those juniors considering joining the club WILL NOT be available, due to the limited places available, this year.
CAR PARK: Free drop-off & pick-up parking only last 20 minutes, thereafter a charge will apply.
