The Junior Development Squad (JDS) gives U12 – U16 athletes an opportunity to gain new skills and improve technical competencies through participation in coaching and training sessions with some of Victoria’s leading coaches.
Training with other keen and enthusiastic squad members is both fun and motivational and helps develop new friendships based on an enjoyment of athletics. The emphasis on learning new athletic skills and improving existing ones is in a friendly and supportive environment.
The program consists of coaching days, invites to events and a highlight for the year is the JDS coaching camp.
To join JDS, athletes must achieve the qualifying standard in their current age group of this season. Athletes who have achieved the qualifying standards should contact Little Athletics Victoria.
