  1. HI there, my name is Kirra and I am wanting to see if it’s a possibility for my daughter Kacey aged 3+3months to join for the remainder of the season. And also, is there any time other than showing up on the Friday nights as per your schedule that Kacey would get to meet the other children as the tiny tots don’t train? My email is kirralee.eller@gmail.com or kirralee.eller@nt.gov.au and contact number 0405 460098. I look forward to hearing from you, thank you.

  2. Hello,
    my daughter is pretty quick around the track and I think she could benefit from coaching.
    Can you tell me what I need to do about this?
    I understand all the parental duties and can help out.
    Send me some pricing details as my budget is very tight.
