Junior Academy

Background

The Academy section is the entry point to the Club for children in School years four to six. We have two such groups each of 25-30 children. The aim is to provide a broad instruction to the basic skills that are fundamental to all athletic activity. In doing this we follow the England Athletics "Athletics 365 programme". The groups meet on Saturdays at 9:00am in Reigate Priory Park . Also once a month we go to K2 in Crawley on a Tuesday evening to train on the track there. The sessions last an hour.

Competition Opportunity

We encourage the children to take every opportunity to compete. In the winter months we encourage participation in local cross country events and put teams into Sportshall events organised by the South Surrey Athletics Network. In the Summer months there are opportunities to participate in the non- scoring U11 events in the leagues we partcipate in. We also enter the Quad Kids events organised again by the South Surrey Athletics Network. We also support local track and field open meetings at Crawley and Tonbridge athletics tracks.
