Club training nights are Tuesday and Thursday, with various sessions taking place between 5.30pm to 8.00pm catering from age 9 upwards in track and field events and road-running. Other training with coaches available by arrangement.
All club members will be requested to pay £2.00 upon entering the track or indoor facility non members are charged £3.00. Proof of membership may also be requested to be shown before entry on to track or indoor is allowed.
All coaching is by UK Athletics qualified coaches who are trained, and have been DBS checked for their suitability for working with young children.
Additional information on the training groups is held elsewhere on the web-site.
Additional information for parents/carers:
Arrangements should be made for your child to travel to and from training sessions. We appreciate it if children can arrive promptly and are collected promptly at the end of the session, if they are not making their own way home. If you are going to be late picking your child up please contact your child’s coach and let them know. For competitions we will notify athletes what the travel arrangements are beforehand.
Training kit that should be worn is a t-shirt or vest shorts, a sweatshirt top, tracksuit pair of trainers/spikes and waterproofs if it rains. Make sure they bring a drink – a bottle of water would be ideal, or a sports drink. In the winter white or bright tops must be worn if going outside the stadium to train on the road.
Any sport can be potentially dangerous; therefore the behaviour of our athletes is important both in training and in competition. The club prides itself on running the club in an open and friendly manner. However, if an athlete shows a lack of discipline e.g. unsafe behaviour, bullying, bad language etc, we will correct the situation immediately. A repeat of any similar will mean having a discussion with the parent/carer, and a further repeat of the bad behaviour will mean the athlete will be asked to leave the club.
