MBD Development Squad Age 10-18 – Sprints, Hurdles, Jumps



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.

An exciting new training opportunity for ages 10-18 to join a regular squad is now up and running.

MattyB DEPT. is looking to find the next Melissa Breen and Lauren Wells. Both these girls started training with MattyB DEPT. at the age 14/15 and have developed into Olympians and wonderful ambassadors.

If you looking to take your athletics to another level this is the squad for you.

The squad has grown over the past 12 months but athletes will always be considered based on squad size and dynamics at the time of your expression of interest. There are no performance standards required to sign up and there is a free 2 week trial available to see if you like the training and fit well into the squad.

The only requirement is a desire to want to improve and learn. As the group grows there will be limits place on size so please ensure you get in early.

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

MBD DEVELOPMENT SQUAD – Sprints, Hurdles, Long/Triple Jump

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

Commitment  – 2 days per week (Monday and Wednesday)

How much – 2 x sessions per week -$150 per month OR 1 x session per week – $80 per month

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

Squad Coach – Matt Beckenham with assistance from Lauren Wells and Melissa Breen


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.
