Fancy having a go at athletics?
From sprinting and hurdling, to jumping, throwing, pole vaulting and steeple chasing, athletics has something for everyone, and our junior sessions are where the fun starts!
Yate & District AC Academy
We meet on a Wednesday night from 7pm – 8pm at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex, where qualified coaches introduce our young athletes to the world of athletics all within the environment of a ‘proper’ athletics stadium.
Sessions are run on a pay as you go basis at £3 per week for athletes aged 8-15 , with no need to pre or block book, but please do come along and try your first night for free.
Following a joint warm up we split out into age groups for coaching in that evenings activity, which varies from week to week – so that we can cover a broad range of athletic skills.
Once you’ve got the hang of it you may want to focus on one or more specific disciplines, and we’ll introduce you to one of our Club Nights (Tuesdays & Thursdays) for specialist coaching.
We’ll also help you to try out your new skills in local competitions if you fancy it – you never know you may be the next Usain Bolt!
Interested? Give one of the contacts below a call for a chat, whether you’re looking for fun, fitness or something more competitive, this could be the start of something special!
