Juniors

We welcome junior members – new juniors may join provided they are in school Year 4 by September of the current year. The Junior section meets on Wednesday evenings from 6:15pm – 7:00pm at Brackenbury Sports Centre in Felixstowe.

Junior sessions follow the UKAthletics 365 programme which allows athletes to follow a set progression and be able to attain UKA recognised levels following assessments. This will hopefully move onto a structured programme of competitions (as well as existing fun runs and cross country) to enter.

To follow the UKA365 programme each junior will follow and record their training in an accompanying log book (cost £5) which will also give them targets to follow during our breaks over the school holidays.

We always provide at least two adults for each coaching group, and all members of the coaching team have met CRB/DBS checks in line with the club’s child protection policy, thus providing a safe environment for juniors.

Please contact the Junior Coaches for more information.
