Withdean Athletics Academy
We want to help children of all abilities get more active and have fun. The academy will introduce to and develop children in athletic activities, in an enjoyable programme run by qualified coaches. All levels of the academy are based on the concepts of introduction, development and progression.
Minis Academy is a course for children aged 4-7 years* of age who are interested in joining the fantastic sport of athletics. At these sessions, the foundations of track and field are built, where they are taught the fundamentals of running, jumping and throwing. These courses run term time on Monday evenings 16:30-17:30 and Saturday mornings 9:00-9:45.
*children under this age may be accepted at the coaches discretion.
Junior (aged 8-11) Academy is an athletics course for children that provides more specific training for each skill in athletics. Techniques will become refined, as the athletes develop their talents and experiences in events within the sport. This course runs term time on Monday evenings 17:30-18:30 & Saturday mornings 10:00-11:00.
Running parallel to the Junior Academy; Secondary Academy (aged 12-15) is run for any athlete looking to simply enhance their all-around athleticism or compete at club and county level. This course runs term time on Monday evenings 17:30-18:30 & Saturday mornings 10:00-11:00.
