Pre-Season Training - Russell Sports Dome

Sold Out!!!

CRLL is happy to announce a Trial Pre-Season Training initiative has been developed in response to a demand to utilise the availability of the Russell Sports Dome.

For the current year there will be limited space for participants for a 6 week training plan with 6 x two hour training sessions indoor at the Sports Dome, see further below for address and Google Maps link.

The cost will be $100 for the six sessions and is required to cover the cost of the Dome as well as equipment required to conduct the training. Sessions will be grouped in two age groups - Minor/Major and Junior/Senior.

Timings for the training have now been confirmed with the Russell Dome, sessions are scheduled as follows:

Minor/Major Players - 9 to 12 years of age - Saturdays 8:00 to 10:00 am, Mar 23rd to Apr 27th

Junior/Senior Players - 13 to 16 years of age - Sundays Mar 24th to Apr 28th As follows:

24 and 31 Mar - 8:00 to 10:00 am

7 / 14 / 28 Apr - 5:00 to 7:00 pm

20 Apr - 4:00 to 6:00 pm

Keep an eye out for further details.....

If successful we will likely be well placed to expand the program for the 2020 season.
