Who leads the training session?
– All our sessions are lead by qualified volunteer coaches and all athletes up to the age of 17 are taught the basics of a wide range of events. Our current list of coaches can be found on our Who’s Who
What do I need to wear/bring? – Please wear suitable sports clothing and trainers/spikes. In cold or wet weather bring plenty of layers and waterproofs. We have a container for storing coats/hoodies during wet training sessions. Please DO NOT bring anything valuable as the club cannot accept any responsibility for any damage, lost or stolen items. Always bring a water bottle. If you are on medication, it is important that you tell our coaches at the start of the session.
Do the athletes train when it’s raining? – Yes, our sessions run in the rain, sun, even snow sometimes, so long as it’s safe. We DO NOT train in thunderstorms. Please check the website and Facebook pages for the latest updates during very poor weather conditions.
Can I just turn up? – We allow athletes to attend a maximum of 3 trial sessions (charged at £2 per session). Please just turn up at correct session and introduce your child to the coach. Parents/carers are asked to stay during trial sessions. Once you have registered to join the club, you can leave your child during the session if you wish.
Can I help?
– YES please! Parent helpers are very welcome. The club is run by volunteers and many jobs do not require you to be a qualified coach in athletics. Please speak to any member of the coaching team if you would like to volunteer. You can contact us at the track or using the details on our Contact
