Teamer App
 
Now this is really important! We use Teamer to gauge how many kids will attend a session and ensure we have enough coaches on the day. For the track bikes this has become even more important as we really need to know how many track bikes we need to bring along.
 
If you have not done so already PLEASE register with Teamer and join the VCCYouth Development Team!!!
 
Please let me know if you are not invited and not seen any details or having technical difficulties. See - http://tinyurl.com/zteqyq9
 
and the new Teamer app showing we have a lot of kids interested for Saturday.
 
Interested in helping our Youth Development Program?
 
With increasing numbers of children attending, we are always on the lookout for volunteers who can help out with Saturday coaching or the Sunday Youth road ride. Please contact Doug or me if you are interested in helping.
