Joining Gowran AC
Our juvenile squads are divided into 2 sections, Gowran AC Academy for ages 6-9, and Gowran AC Juvenile Squad for ages 10 plus.
Gowran AC Academy (ages 6-9)
We offer a games-based approach to training with a view to developing Agility, Balance and Co-ordination, in particular for the younger end of the academy (6-7 year olds) – over the year they will have an opportunity to participate in some competitions but it is not our focus here.
For the 8-9 year olds in the Academy, training is typically a little more competition focused, our coaches look to develop running, throwing and jumping abilities in a fun environment. There are opportunities for all to compete at county and provincial level in throwing, jumping, running and relays – and for those that qualify national competitions – but our focus here is on participation, not performance.
During the summer, the Academy trains twice a week in Gowran Park between 6.30 – 7.30pm

Gowran AC Juvenile Squad (ages 10-17)
Our Juvenile Squad members are aged 10 – 17 and train for and compete across a range of events, during the ages of 10-13 – kids train for all events, we strongly believe that there should not be specialisation until they are 14-16. Are focus with kids of this age is fitness and technical skills training.
