Editor’s note: It’s hard to find an image of young athletes which we can use on social media, as we take our responsibilities for child protection very seriously.  We welcome ALL shapes and sizes.  Young people develop at different times and we love to see them progress.

All we ask for is a positive approach and enjoyment of being outside!
