This is a reminder that your Club membership for 2013 expires on 31 December and is due for renewal by 31 January 2014. You must renew online.
If you are not planning on renewing your membership for 2014 please let Lisa know, otherwise she will be chasing you up!
We would also like to encourage as many members as possible to pay the Annual training fee, as this offers extremely good value, even if you are only planning to attend one session a week. The annual training fee needs to be paid separately from the membership subscription. Details of how to pay can be found on the Annual training fee page.
The Club's coaches and junior coordinators have been reviewing the current Saturday training sessions for our junior athletes. In response to feedback and suggestions from the athletes, parents and the coaches we are launching a rather different approach to this season's winter training. The changes are significant and the Club’s investment in hiring additional training venues considerable – particularly the racing pool at CPNSC, Hillingdon Cycle Circuit and Herne Hill Velodrome. We hope it will enthuse our athletes and encourage all ages and abilities to commit to attending the sessions.
Weekend training sessions will take the shape of mini 2-3 hour training camps in a variety of locations and covering at least two disciplines. There will be seven mini-camps between early January and the end of March, with coaches to cover different skills/performance levels, providing lots of action and focus - hard and fun! Some sessions will be on Saturday, others on Sunday in order to access the best training facilities possible and there won’t be a session every week.
The mini-camp sessions will be included in the Annual Training fees
£100 for juniors
£125 for juniors who have permission to train at adult sessions
or for PAYG there will be a £10 session fee to cover coaching and facility costs.
As always there will be real benefit in attending as many of these sessions as you possibly can and with fewer, more concentrated sessions this will hopefully make it easier to fit other commitments around Club training!
We are also very keen to encourage parents to join in and exercise at the same time – parents are very welcome to cycle at HHV and Hillingdon at the same time as the junior sessions, swim at CPNSC (although in the public lanes!) and join the fun at the Scout Camp.
We look forward to a great CPT turnout and results from both juniors and parents at the Hillingdon Duathlon races on 30 March ;-))
The regular weekday training sessions (Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays) will continue as usual!! Ideally our Juniors should try to run and swim at least once a week in addition to the weekend mini camps – this can, of course, include school or other training sessions outside CPT.
The revised constraints from British Triathlon for young riders on the open roads has curtailed a key element of training for our stronger junior athletes. This currently limits to those aged 14+, unless accompanied by a parent or authorised adult on a 1:1 basis. This increases the importance of all athletes attending the Hillingdon and HHV camps.
Please do get these dates in your diaries and be sure to let Jon know which camps you will be attending.
