The first testing phase of CANI’s upcoming Talent Fast-Track programme; Sprint Futures, has been completed in a number of schools nearby the Belfast Boat Club. The first phase of testing had the students complete 3 fitness tests – Standing Jump Height, Plank Hold, and 3-minute Run. Approximately 60 students met our requirements for two or more of these fitness tests and have been invited to participate in the second phase of testing which will be completed later this month. The Sprint Futures programme will take on a maximum of 12 future-athletes with their sights on international competition within 2 years.
