Juniors

Junior training covers all track and field disciplines and we believe that young athletes in particular should have an opportunity to try all the events before they decide to specialise at an older age.

Junior training sessions currently take place as follows:

Saturday: Coached track session
10am to 11am. Southwark Athletics Centre, Hawkstone Road, SE16 2PE. For ages 8-16 years.

Price: £21 per half-term

In order to book, please first ensure you have registered your child as a member of London City AC.

Details for junior session payments will be emailed when you register as a member. Payments for sessions should be made in advance by direct bank transfer and unfortunately we cannot accept cash. Please ensure that you include the name of the athlete in the payment reference.

The half-term periods correspond with Southwark school term dates.

Equipment:

  • Suitable clothing to run, jump and throw – no jeans
  • Trainers only
  • Water bottle

Please note:

Sessions are outdoors and so are dependant on the weather conditions. Please arrived changed – facilities at the track are currently basic. If a session has to be cancelled a text/email will be sent as earlier as possible. Payment must be made in advance of sessions and can be made in half-term blocks. Sessions cannot be carried over to the next half-term period if not attended. We cannot guarantee a place for your child if payment has not been made.
