Berkshire Youth Athletics Club; a club created to teach the FUNdamentals of running, throwing, and jumping, in a fun and engaging environment.
BYAC provides an excellent opportunity for children currently on the waitlist at their local athletics club, to begin their athletics journey early.
Initially to run under the StepUp banner, the club aims to become affiliated with England Athletics and Berkshire Athletics Association.
Initially the club will be accepting registrations from children aged 6 to 13 years old, with a view to expanding the age range later in the year.

Club training sessions take place at Edgbarrow School on Wednesdays between 5.30pm and 8.30pm, 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, staff will be available to greet you from around 5-10 minutes before each session start time, where athletes will need to sign in. Please do not arrive any earlier than this 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 6.30pm/7.30pm/8.30pm.
