Important Information

Club training sessions take place at Edgbarrow School on Wednesdays between 6pm and 8pm, inside the school gymnasium, which is the large white building seen to the right side of the school’s main reception. NOT THE SPORTS CENTRE. 

Athletics club is an all-weather club, which means that as long as it is safe to do so, we operate in rain and cold conditions. Please ensure your child attends each week with the following kit:

  • Shorts or running leggings, with t-shirt or running vest
  • Sports trainers
  • Warm layer (either a base layer or fleece)
  • Waterproof jacket
  • A non-fizzy drink

Sessions begin promptly at 6pm/7pm, staff will be available to greet you from 5.55pm/6.55pm, where you will be required to sign your child in. Please do not arrive earlier than this time as staff will be busy preparing the session and therefore unavailable to greet you. 

To ensure your child remains focused on the session and learns and develops accordingly, we request that parents do not stay and watch. 

Collection is from the drop off point at 7pm/8pm.
