Our focus is on agility, balance and co-ordination, so we have a variety of activities, mainly focussed on run, jump and throw. In winter and when it’s cold we tend to do more running to keep everybody warm, while in summer we may be running, long-jumping, playing ‘games’ and throwing soft javelins, all in the same session. We also tend to tailor the activities towards the ongoing competition events at any point in time, ie. track and field events in summer, and indoor sports-hall and cross country in winter.
Our U11s compete in track and field, cross country and indoor sportshall. We encourage our athletes to compete, and believe that this can be an excellent way of taking athletics participation to the next level. It also helps to develop team working skills. Participants of all abilities are welcome, and everybody scores points for the team no matter where they find themselves on the results sheet. After you join the club, you can expect to be contacted by email by the relevant team manager for your child’s age group, advising you of upcoming competitions. Our coaches will also discuss competitions with the junior athletes, and advise them of their strongest events.
