Those invited for a trial will train with the club for a probationary period of time. This allows FVH coaches to evaluate each individual before offering membership. It also allows you to decide if you wish to pursue athletics by being involved in the activities of the club.

FVH Coaches provide instruction in Track and Field events, in a relaxed, friendly and encouraging atmosphere. Club training sessions are Tuesday & Thursday evenings (some coaches have extra sessions). If you were to be offered membership most coaches expect their athletes to train twice a week.
