If there is something you would like to do but cannot see it just let us know.

 

Flexi Training

We know that some of you find it difficult to attend training at the times that we can organise so we now have another option for you - Flexi Training.

You can book your chosen lesson with our trainers and it is valid for 3 months. 
When you have booked you will receive a unique booking code and contact details for the trainer. You then book your lesson direct with the trainer at a mutually convenient time. 
Your training will be recorded as BD training towards regional team selection if you wish to apply.
