We take on juniors who are on our club program and employ them to help assist the head coach on our foundation classes. These players are selected from those who have done work experience, see below.
We allow children from 14 years of age to do work experience. This will involve helping out at the foundation class lessons for at least 6 weeks. This can be particularly useful for D of E awads scheme.
