Due to high demand we have a waiting list in operation to train with our academy on a Wednesday evening. If your child is in Year 4 to 8 and they wish to join the academy please contact academytrainingenquiries@gmail.com. When applying to join the waiting list please include date of birth and September school year for the child.

NOTE: The athletics club is run by volunteers and we are always looking for more. Your child will be able to join immediately if you are able to help the academy on a regular basis. No experience is necessary and for coaching you will be fully trained though England Athletics.
