So the DURC novice squad has stopped training over the christmas break. And so far I’m very upbeat about this year’s squad. Several complete naturals, several more who can be just as good with just a little training, and only a few who will have to work harder – and they’re not bad by any metric you’d care to name. It’s been tight getting them all into the range, and we’ve had to increase novice squad time to two days a week (plus another day for the senior squad), but it’s been worth it.
Next year, their training’s going to take off, and it’s going to be a fun ride 😀
