Our Junior Athletics Academy runs on Saturdays during term time at our Headingley Campus. The session is open to Juniors between the ages of 8-16 years and is available for all abilities. Athletes will be provided with a quality coaching programme allowing them to develop their own individual skills, through different drills and disciplines.

A typical session will consist of 1-2 different technical athletic disciplines, such as:

  • Sprinting
  • High Jump
  • Endurance
  • Long Jump
  • Javelin
  • Triple jump

All the activities that the Juniors take part in have key transferable skills for their development.
