Younger athletes (9-11 years)
Athletes between the ages of 9 and 11 train in our early Monday evening session at the Colchester Garrison Track between 6:30 - 7:30pm with qualified coaches or assistant coaches. Sessions are based on the England Athletics FUNdamentals programme, which involves jumping and throwing as well as running. All young athletes are expected to learn all three disciplines as part of our rotation system.
Please note: due to high demand, our FUNdamentals waiting list is currently closed.
Older athletes (12+ years / adult)
We run sessions on Monday and Wednesday evenings for athletes aged 12 and above. Please contact the Club Membership Secretary via the contact form on our homepage before coming down to the track. Please let us know the athletics discipline(s) you are interested in, and we shall endeavour to secure a place for you amongst our training groups. You will get three taster sessions to give you time to decide whether you like the club and wish to join.
Please be aware that if you join the club, you will be expected to show commitment, not just to training, but also to competition. All our coaches, committee members and league managers are volunteers and give up their time freely. We also expect some commitment from parents to help where possible.
Please note that due to high demand, the waiting list for our FUNdamentals sessions for younger athletes (ages 9-11) is currently closed.
If you are an older athlete (12+) wishing to join the club, please specify which discipline(s) you are interested in (e.g. sprints, middle distance, long jump, high jump, throws). Please note that due to high demand, some disciplines are currently full and operating waiting lists.
