JOINING

Ages 5-12

For primary school aged children aged 5-12 we three stages of "Run, Jump & Throw" clubs with a block of sessions in each school term, and holiday camps during Easter and summer holidays.

This part of the Club focuses on fundamental movement skills and helps children learn vital skills which they will need as they develop.

Youngsters are introduced to a range of athletic events, basic skills, balance, coordination and speed sessions; the essential ABC's of all sports.

More details on the "Run, Jump & Throw Club" including dates, times and locations for the next block are available via the link below:

Run, Jump & Throw Club (Ages 5-12)

Regular weekly training and full athletics club membership starts from age 9, for children who are ready to progress. Progression is at the discretion of the lead RJT coach.

Ages 12-18

For secondary school aged children wanting to try athletics, we run taster sessions during our Wednesday evening session from 7.00 pm to 9.00 pm.

The taster sessions give potential members a chance to find out about the club, sample the training and perhaps even take part in a competition, before committing to full club membership.

You can try the sessions free of charge for up to 3 weeks before you need to join the club. If Wednesday nights are not suitable, we can also arrange a taster on a Monday evening.

More information about the club is available in the "Club Information Sheet" download below.

Please register for your taster session using the link below:

Taster Session Registration: Wednesday 7.00 pm - 9.00 pm (S1-S6)

Ages 18+

For senior athletes, who will be specialising in a particular athletics discipline, please contact us to discuss training options.

The club also offer recreational running groups based at Craigswood Sports Centre. Whether you're training for your first race or you're trying out jogging for the first time, our sessions are not only a great way to keep fit but also a chance to meet new friends.
