DSD have two primary training schedules, Summer Schedule and Winter Schedule. The changeover between these schedules is weather and light dependent but normally takes place around end of April and end of September. When checking the current schedule on the website around these times please check whether it is the Summer or Winter schedule. If you are in doubt as to its accuracy, please confirm with one of our coaches before relying on it.

Training times/locations will change during the year especially when competitions are on, so keep updated on the website, or email/text your coach for further details.
