SYO's club night will take place on Wednesday evenings during term time. We start back after the holidays on Wednesday 6th September. During September the sessions will take place from 6pm to 7:30pm at roving outdoor locations to take advantage of the light evenings. From October the sessions will move indoors and will be based each week at High Storrs school from 7pm-8.30pm. Each session will contain a mix of physical and technical training - details below:
Coaching & Development
SYO has an active coaching and development programme with sessions that combine technique and physical training and are suitable for people of all ages, experience and ability. We are also looking to train members to become event volunteers.
