We offer an indoor, outdoor, and cross country season for our junior athletes. Indoor will run from November to March, outdoor from May to July and cross country from September to October.
Training days and locations vary depending on the season (Fowler Athletic Park for outdoor, Edmonton Garrison Fitness Centre for indoor), but typically JD athletes train two to three days a week. The outdoor season offers a more flexible schedule.
