About the Junior Club

The junior section meets every Friday (outside the school summer holiday) at the Hampton Sports Centre from 6 – 7pm. We welcome young people, of all abilities, between the ages of 8 and 16 years.

The sessions are run by UKA coaches, qualified to UK Athletics standards and are all DBS checked and qualified first aiders. All coaches are also members of Yaxley Runners & Joggers.

We run a full athletics programme aimed at providing children with the opportunity to learn, practice and develop all aspects and events within the sport of athletics. Above all else, we aim to make the session fun and enjoyable whatever their ability.

Children are encouraged to take part in the local races organised by many of the local running clubs, as well as our own inter-club events, although no pressure is put on the children to participate.

Membership to the junior section is £10 per year. There’s no obligation to join immediately, just come along and try out for a couple of weeks and if you like what we offer, sign up and become a member.

Children taking part in club races will need to purchase a club running vest at £18.
