Squad Equipment

It is vitally important to have all the required training equipment with you at every training session. This enables you to fully participate in all training sets and drill sets that your coach prescribes and therefore get the most out of your training and not de-harmonise the flow of the squad by having to do something different!

Please refer to the  Squad Equipment Page for the equipment required for your squad.
