Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question?  It's likely we've been asked that before, however if not please get in touch.

  • At what age can youngsters normally start athletics?

The recommended age for your son or daughter to start getting introduced to athletics is from the age of 9 onwards.  This is due to their rapid growth and the impact to them.  From the age of 9, we offer training sessions on a Tuesday from 6.00pm to 7.00pm and Saturday from 9.00am to 10.30 am.  We also offer competitive meetings for 9-10 yr olds in the Alder Valley League. For more information please click here U11 Athletics Team

  • I don't know who to speak to when attending a training session for the first time.

You're welcome to speak to any of the coaches who are around the track area when you arrive for your first training session and they will be able to point you in the right direction.  Also take a look at the Coaching Staff section to lookup contact information for all the clubs' coaches.
