Hi all, and welcome to the 2014 Harrier Season,
Vanessa (that’s me) Bill and Simon are looking after the juniors this year, that is, all runners between 7yrs and 13yrs.
Our CLUB RUNS are for a training session as a pack ie all runners of the similar ability run together. We will aim to have squads of differing abilities in order to cater for everyone. The pack runs will be between 20-40 minutes long , plus we may do drills and relays etc.
((We want to make the season as interesting as possible for our juniors so this year we will continue with our mystery runs, do some fun stuff, as well as pack runs.))
- RACES -Harriers is generally a social running club but we do have quite a few races during the year- individual and team events, both cross country and road running.
These races can be as serious as you like but most members race to be a part of a team and to measure themselves against their own goals etc.
- PARENTS – We will be roping in some of the running parents to help take sessions with the juniors.
- Junior Harriers is not a “drop off” activity. Because alot of our pack runs involve road crossings and kids getting tired we do require parent help/involvement with the juniors. We would appreciate parents being available to their kids just in case they are needed.
Our website has a new format this year – The newsletter will be in a pdf format as a link in the website, www.hvh.org.nz, so I will be sending out reminders to have a look at the latest newsletter, and also sending out some additional information via email. The first few emails will be sent to all who were on the database last year plus those new members who have contacted me during the summer season.
