Juniors

The preferred approach of UK Athletics our national governing body, is a multi discipline approach with the focus firmly on fun. Our young athletes can find out for themselves what disciplines they prefer. This builds their overall sporting skills equipping them for a sporting filled life and keeps them healthy and injury free as they develop and grow.

Children can join from the age or 6 upwards. All athletes will be coached the FUNdamental movements of track and field through a multi-discipline approach. We review technical proficiency using the Athletics 365 curriculum. Athletes are coached and challenged based on their developmental age and with competition in mind, moving to a Tuesday or Thursday C&AC training group when old enough and ready for competition.

If a child has already developed an event and can demonstrate proficiency in then speak to our coaches on how this can be built into an overall multi discipline approach. You can either contact one of our coaches through our track and field training groups, visit us at the track or use our general contact form.

Our junior teams compete in a range of leagues throughout the year. Between October to March it is mainly cross country within the West Midland Young Athletes Cross Country League. Then from April to July there are Youth Development League, Super 4 and Quadkids competitions.
