All athletes (U6-U17) who registered and paid for the Summer Season are encouraged to continue training over the winter months. You are able to participate in weekly winter training at no extra cost. Winter training is held on Mondays from 5:00pm-6:00pm with Coach Brian Schepisi. Training takes place at Duncan Mackinnon on the grassed area near the netball courts.
Bayside Cross Country
All registered Caulfield athletes are encouraged to sign up to Bayside Cross Country. This is a fabulous way to stay fit especially if your children play winter sport like soccer, football, basketball, lacrosse, netball or want to continue their fitness in preparation for next season. It also gives them the chance to hang out with their aths friends over winter and make new friends.

Bayside Cross Country is an amalgamation of Brighton, Caulfield, Mentone, Moorabbin, Oakleigh, Sandringham and Springvale Little Athletics Centres.
Each Saturday competition is from 8:10am (walk the course) with races starting at 8:30am. Competition is usually over by 10:00am-10:30am. Athletes come and race and are then free to go home.
All levels of ability are strongly encouraged to participate. Just like track and field, the focus is on PBs, having fun and self improvement. In fact no one is left behind as there is an adult running at the front and back of the field.
Once per season you will be asked to do a duty for an hour or so when Caulfield is rostered on duty.
The venues include Bald Hill, Braeside Park, Hampton Foreshore and Westgate Park. The following events are offered:
U6 (Bald Hill, Braeside Park only): 500m

Uniform: Athletes are to run in their Caulfield singlet/Tshirt/crop top on race day with their competition patch. No patch, no results. Uniforms will be available for purchase on one of our Monday night training sessions.
