Athletics Training

Athletics coaching for all disciplines from age 8 (School Year 4) upwards.



If your budding athlete is interested in athletics - this is the perfect place to start!

Saturday morning is a multi-training session and a great introduction to athletics. We encourage athletes to try a range of events as this is crucial for their long-term athletic development, and they may find their hidden potential.

We work closely with England Athletics and qualified coaches to ensure you or your child is offered expert guidance.

We usually receive athletes from School Year 1, but we are currently only taking 8-year-olds and upwards due to limited availability.

Our various training sessions at Ashton Playing Fields are tailored to mixed abilities.

The atmosphere is friendly and encouraging.

What to expect

The sessions have a mixture of events from the track, to cross country, jumps and throws.

A typical session will start with the following:

  1. Warmups
  2. Drills
  3. multi-event training 
  4. Cooldown & stretches

FOR YEAR 4 - 6
