Training 2021

It is that time of year already and applications are open for 2021 courses.
Youth Evening Training starts this year (slightly later than usual) the week commencing the 10 May.

We plan to run beginner and intermediate youth courses on both a Monday and Wednesday evening, and a more advanced course on a Thursday evening. However places cannot be guaranteed and you are recommended to apply early. When you apply you will have the option to select either a Monday or a Wednesday for intermediate and beginner course however when we review the applications we will assess the ability of applicants to try and fit them into the correct group with matched abilities. So please be as flexible as possible with the two days as it may be that we offer you a different day to that which you have applied for. It is very difficult to ensure the quality of training if we have mixed ability groups.

The closing date for the Youth Evening Training is Friday 5 March. 

Adult Evening courses

Will run one evening a week from 5.30 / 6.00pm. The first course will start in May, with a second course starting in June / July.

Please apply early if you are interested as this will help us to plan better, although we will accept applications up to two weeks before the course start dates.
