ACT Junior Programme

The Club Coach, Nathan Richmond, oversees Junior coaching at ACT

We would like to thank Garth Barfoot (pictured on right) for his generous support of the ACT Junior Programme. Even in his eighties Garth is still competing all over the world and he is a fantastic role model for the juniors!

ACT Junior Club Training

The ACT junior programme provides regular training for its junior members, aimed at developing new skills, improving fitness and facilitating junior development. 

During the season there will be regular training sessions at the weekends. There will either be a coach-led specific training session or an informal, parent-led training session (eg. Sunday rides). Check ACT junior emails and ACT Facebook page for upcoming session details, equipment to bring and for any changes in plans due to weather.

To attend these sessions please register with Nathan Richmond. There will be a small charge for some of the sessions.

Other Training Options

Nathan Richmond runs a brick session for Juniors at the Lloyd Elsemore Running Track. Contact Nathan for more information.

ACT is affiliated with Athletics New Zealand and encourages all members to participate in the Auckland Winter Cross Country Series over the off season. Athletes are also encouraged to get involved in school cycling. If your school does not have a team we can put you in touch with composite teams.

Athletes are also encouraged to participate in open water swimming events such as the Kohi Summer Swim Series or the North Shore Beach Series 


Thanks to our loyal supporters
