MBD Development Squad Age 12-16



If you enjoy your athletics, recently done well at your school carnival, been involved in little athletics and want to give yourself a chance to run faster, jump further etc. then this squad is for you.

There are no performance standards to join this squad with the only requirement being a desire to want to improve and learn.

Training will focus primarily on sprints, jumps, hurdles and general athlete development.



Who – Athletes aged 12-16 who love their athletics and looking to do it regularly

When – On going all year (except when coaches are interstate or overseas for competitions or camps)

Commitment  – 2-3 days per week

Where – AIS Track (athletes must purchase their own season pass or tickets)

How much – $150 per month

Squad Coach – Matt Beckenham



The development squad represents stage 2 of the Athlete pathway and introduces athletes to a squad environment that trains regularly.

Long term athletic development is the primary focus but athletes in the Development Squad will be introduced to planning, goal setting and some of the requirements needed to become a more serious athlete and target major events of interest.

It is hoped that development squad athletes will one day develop into elite athletes in their own right and progress into the Senior or the extremely exclusive Elite squad in the future.
