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.
The programme is based around Athletics, but the skills acquired can be extremely beneficial to children across a wide variety of sports. The club operates in a safe, relaxed and friendly environment, allowing children to enjoy their experience, make new friends and to progress athletically. It is widely recognised that Athletic activities: running, jumping and throwing - underpin every sport.
