Juveniles can start from 6 years old. Our 6-7 year old athletes will be involved in Recreational training with emphasis mainly on game based activities. It is club policy that juveniles in this age group have a parent / guardian present during training.

From age 8 our groups will be split into 8-9 and 10-11 age groups and activities will be based on:

 

  • Sprint and distance sessions

  • Long Jump
  • Relays

Ages 11 up to 19 years take part in sprint, distance and endurance training whilst also training in field events:

  • High Jump
  • Shot Putt
  • Long Jump
  • Relays
