Hi all, I’d love to know your thoughts on the following issue. To cut a long story short my son is 11 years old and has previously been on the elite track but I don’t think he’s up to it this year, mostly due to not enough training hrs. The HC has offered his group the option of coming in for extra training one night a week but with no coach. There will be other coaches in the gym coaching rec or girls etc. He has also told them there has to be at least 2 boys training. My son is the youngest the other boys range from 13-16 years. I just don’t feel that much training will happen - more messing, and it’s just not worth another evening of running around. But maybe I’m not giving my son enough credit, maybe the boys already work independently more than I realise, maybe even a bit of extra training would benefit him.
