Important squad announcement
Nothing to report.
The training emphasis for the Squad is an introduction to all track and field events appropriate to the age range (8-11) as well as all round functional fitness training. Shaun and Sharon believe the key at this age is for the athletes to have fun whilst training, and aim to create an inclusive, relaxed environment in which the athletes can learn and take their first steps in athletics.

Other training information
Please note that during the Winter season (starting around September/October each year), all athletes aged 9+ are encouraged to attend our Saturday Outdoor training at Hughenden Park (which usually runs from 9:30 am to 11:30 am); athletes will train together with our Foundation Squad athletes. These sessions are fun and targeted at improving overall fitness and we make use of the varied terrain at the park. We would like to see as many of our young athletes from this squad to come to these outdoor sessions over the winter season whenever possible. We meet at the Coates Lane entrance to Hughenden Park, just outside the children’s play area. Athletes should come to these sessions, prepared for all weather, wearing plenty of layers to keep warm and dry and have a coat with them.
