Athletics has something for everyone but if you are aged 9 years to 14 this is the best way to start. From long jump to high jump, sprinting to long distance, hurdling, throwing and pole vault.
Experience them all through this youth development programme, which introduces athletes to the fundamental skills of athletics and also provides a solid foundation for all other sports. Some of Britain’s most successful athletes started with run, jump, throw perhaps the most familiar being Jessica Ennis.
In groups of around 15 of similar age groups led by our qualified coaches the sessions focus not only on how fast someone runs or how far they jump or throw but more importantly on developing the technical skills. Athletics 365 also looks at an athlete’s physical, mental and emotional development.
Not all young athletes develop at the same time but the club aims to provide a streamlined athlete development pathway through the 365 Academy to an event group with the track & field specialist coaches. Talent identification is in consultation between the 365 Coaches, Event Group coaches and the Coach Coordinator.
Sessions are run on Tuesday / Thursday evenings or Sunday Morning, or a combination of these.
The Athletics 365 programme is broken down into nine progressive stages. Each stage provides athletes with new and progressively more difficult challenges appropriate to their stage of development. Athletics 365 encourages athletes to learn all the skills and events of athletics, and reinforces the importance of a good all round skill base.
