Junior Athletics Taster Days

5 months ago By Kevin Aspindle

An ideal introduction to all aspects of Athletics for both newcomers to the sport and those who are already attached to an athletic club.

“Accent on fun & enjoyment” Chris Drake, Coach

Spenborough & District Athletic Club held STARTRACK for many years when it was sponsored by Aviva and UKA Academy to provide a three day event for children aged 8 to 13. With the loss of sponsorship Spenborough continued to run the event in 2015 renaming it Junior Athletics Taster Days.
This year’s three day event is being held on Monday to Wednesday 13th to 15th August 2018. As the title implies it gives an ideal introduction to all aspects of athletics for both newcomers to the sport and those who are already attached to an athletic club.
The youngsters who attend will have a chance to participate in sprinting, discus, long jump, shot put, javelin, hammer and hurdles. They will also have the chance to show what they have learnt as they compete against each other in the individual athletic competitions. To round off the event they will be split into even teams to compete over an obstacle course where teamwork becomes important. The accent will be on fun and enjoyment and nobody will be pressurised to participate.
Qualified coaches are on hand to instruct in the various disciplines and they all have the necessary DBS status to ensure that there will be a safe environment over the full extent of the proceedings.
The entry form is self-explanatory and should contain all the information that you will need. We look forward to receiving your child in August.

Chris Drake, Coach and Entries Secretary
