WINTER REPRESENTATIVE PROGRAM
Before the COVID Lockdown situation, the Winter Representative Program had been running for 2 of the 8 weeks which saw all participants who enrolled in the program the opportunity to attend at least one session. In a normal year, it is run as an intensive 4 weeks straight with 128 participants, however due to COVID restrictions this year, the program contained less numbers per group (12) but over a 2 week rotation for a period of 8 weeks. The program is designed to provide an opportunity for boys and girls with elite coaching opportunities during the off season. As it stands we are hoping to run the remaining 6 sessions once lockdown restrictions are lifted.
For more information on the program, please contact DVCA Representative Coordinator, Brett Cole.
