2021 TRAINING INFORMATION
Training at WUSC is held at Terrara Park from January to September!
Our Senior Teams commence in January, while February will see the start of the majority of our Junior Teams!
The training night your team will train will eventually be determined by your coach's availability! The coaches are an important part of your child's time as a Whitehorse United player, so we need to allow for them to have some flexibility so that they can provide the best environment they can!
During the season (April-September) we have full access to Terrara Park 5 nights a week and both weekend days! As the majority of our teams will train twice a week, expect to be down on two weeknights for training! And of course a Saturday or Sunday for your games!
In our Pre-Season period (January-March), we have limited to access to Terrara Park (nights to be confirmed) which will likely impact training times and length of training sessions. It is also likely that the nights used for training in Pre-Season will change when the season proper commences. So while we know it's difficult to manage multiple sports/activities for the kids, if your team coach needs to make a change from what's available during Pre Season you will see a change in your training schedule!
From April, changerooms are available if players need to get changed/have a shower, and the canteen area will be available for parents/siblings to stay out of the cold! We always encourage guardians to stay for the entirety of any given session.
In 2021 however, massive building works means our access will be different to any other year! We'll be learning about availibility with you!
About Pre-season Training at Terrara
The ground is divided into 3 zones.
One is in front of the carpark, one is in front of the pavilions, and one is past the cricket nets furthest from the carpark.
We could be in any one of these zones on any given trial night, so please make sure you look for us when you get there! We'll make it obvious, we promise!
