Dunboyne AC has a new fitness programme for teenagers (Ages 13-19). While the ethos of F4Y is to get fit while making new friends, some have already decided to do some serious training and have joined the Juvenile Sprint group. Some unassuming teens are now realising their potential and are representing their club and schools in athletics – among these are Transition Year students who are doing the Fit4Youth programme as part of their Gaisce Award.

In past years, some members have done the Remembrance Run and the Jingle Bells Run. They all recorded great times, but most importantly, they enjoyed the occasions. The comraderie among the group was evident in both these runs – some of our members who were capable of recording fast times actually chose to stay with those who were doing their first 5k. The running bug has bitten some, as already this year, we had members in the Operation Transformation run and our own club 5K.

During the Summer months, the members get a chance to try out various other disciplines, such as long Jump, Javilin, racewalking etc.

The success of Fit4Youth in Dunboyne is due to the dedication of our super Coaches, our dedicated Fit4Life Volunteers who provide TLC when required, and last but not least our Fit4Youth members who are always friendly and good humoured. We believe that Fit4Youth has achieved its initial aim of getting members aged 13 to 19 back into the club. If you are between 13 and 19 years old, why not try Fit4Youth.

Training
Training for Fit4Youth is on Monday and Wednesday commencing at 8pm.
