ATHLETICS CLUB TRAINING

Training Sessions

For athletes who progress to the main athletics club, the training nights are Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings at Craigswood Sports Centre, Livingston, where we offer a variety of training groups to suit athletes of all ages and abilities.

For junior athletes at the "Reception" stage (aged 9-11/12) or the "Intermediate" stage (aged 11/12 to 14/15), we have five different "multi-event" groups where everyone is encouraged to try a variety of events, with the emphasis on developing skills and improving fitness. This prepares the athletes for competing in a range of events at the various competitions at which the club participate.

For athletes aged 14/15 and above, we have event specific groups for sprints, 300m/400m, endurance, jumps, throws, hurdles and combined events.

Preperation

To get the most out of training, athletes should not be eating food (especially sweets or crisps) immediately before a session. Mobile phones and music players are also not allowed during training!

Holidays

The club training sessions are on every week of the year, throughout all half term, summer and Easter holidays, except for a two week end-of-season break at the end of September and a two week break over the Christmas holidays.

Absence

If your child is unable to attend training, you can notify the club via the contact form and the message will be passed to the registration team and your child's coach.
