NOTE: All club events including Junior Development suspended until further notice due to Covid-19.
(17 March 2020)
One of Balmoral’s main focal points is developing our juniors into well rounded and competitive riders.
On Saturday mornings, we run a junior development program followed by junior simulated races. All juniors must participate in a skills session, run by our coaches. All Balmoral coaches are CQ qualified and hold current blue cards. For more information you are welcome to come talk to us at the clubhouse on Saturday mornings, or contact Steve Potts: firstname.lastname@example.org
Timing for our Junior Development is seasonal.
During summer, (Qld school terms 1 & 4), we have simulated racing commencing 6:00am followed by a mandatory skills session, ( registration from 5:45am).
For the remainder of the year, skills sessions start at 8:30am and junior simulated racing begins at 9:15am, ( registration from 8:15am).
Should a newcomer need a bike, the club does have a very limited number of smaller sizes.
As well as this, at our club track sessions the juniors train separately and skills is a heavy focus for the session. Junior development sessions cost $5.
Balmoral’s Junior Development and Club Racing Policy contains additional detailed information about our junior program, including criteria for progression through junior and open graded racing at Murarrie. (Click here to read).
