Junior Training Timetable

We wish to see all our athletes develop gradually and so do not push for them to be events specific until they have developed foundation skills in all athletics areas. Young athletes move through the structure until they have the skills to progress safely. Athletes aged between 8 – 15 join the England Athletics Development Scheme "Athletics 365" until our qualified coaches feel the young person is ready to move to an event group.


Coaching Arrangements

Movement of athletes through colour groups dependent upon

        Skill acquisition and recommendation from coaches

        Enthusiasm and commitment - based on attendance at Mid Lancs and Open fixtures, willingness to compete in league competitions

        Space in next training group
