Due to the success of Mars Refuel funding, and a reasonable turnout of adults, the sessions are continuing over summer. We have recently received notification of Active York Sport Unlimited funding for October - December this year. The majority of our club members are 7-12yrs or 16+yrs. The new funding is aimed at bridging this gap to encourage more 13-16yr olds to take part. This would allow a clear progression for the younger juniors, and sessions pitched at more relevant levels for the existing members. So now we need more adults, and more teenagers!

York Junior Octopush are the proud receivers of funding from Mars Refuel! This is fantastic news as it will allow the sessions to continue over the summer (without pool costs being split with the University Club). Now all we need are more adult members! More information here.

We've just had our last session of the term, and we are very happy with how this term has gone. We have 15 juniors on our books, with 10-12 regular junior attendees. Progress reports are now in place so we can monitor how each junior is doing and tailor training sessions more effectively. We are looking forward to 2009 when we'll have more juniors joining us.
