Q: Do I have to book in advance or can I just turn up on a Saturday morning for training ?
A: You do not need to book in advance for Saturday training, just turn up at 9:00am and go to the registration area where you will be introduced to your coach. All children need to be accompanied by an adult to sign on for training.

Q: How long does training go on for ?
A: Normally we start promptly at 9:15am and will go on until 10:45am, dependent on weather and what the group is doing that day. For your children's safety, parents are required to come to the registration tent to collect players at the end of the session. This is also so you can get updates and info from the coaches and staff.
