If you could go onto our website and download a Junior Guest Form, fill it in and bring it on your 1st visit that will save time.
The juniors have some good facilities where they can come along and train on a track or in one of the halls that are provided at the school.
Our junior members meet at Wrenn School, Doddington Road, Wellingborough, NN8 2JJ (MAP) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm until 8:00pm.
Parents: Be sure to join the Juniors Facebook page to be kept up to date with all arrangements for transport to events amongst other things.
July 12th - Chairman's Cup This is an annual event for club athletes held at the Thurston Drive Athletics Track, Kettering NN15 6PB. We have traditionally had good results at this event and would encourage everyone to attend. As this is a team event we need as many entrants as we can to enable us to score as many points as possible.
Entries for each event will be made on the day by the team captain, so please arrive early to allow him/her to compile the team sheet for submission to the organisers.
There are two age categories:
a) under 11 on August 31st 2015 and 8 or older on July 12th 2015
b) under 13 on August 31st and 11 or 12 years of age
July 17th - Silson vs WDAC Challenge. Another annual event that is held at the superb track and field facilities at Stowe School, Stowe, Buckingham MK18 5EH. This year there will be groups from Daventry and Buckingham & Stowe competing in the event. Please allow sufficient travelling time to arrive by 6.00pm.
The running events will include 75m, 400m and 600m for under 11 girls and boys; 75m, 100m, 800m for under 13 girls and boys with 4x400 relays for both age groups. The field events will be the long jump and the foam javelin.
July 21st - Corby Open meeting. At this, the fifth Corby Open of the season, there will not be a clash with a training session at Wrenn School (see next item), which gives the coaches the opportunity to go to Corby and support the Junior members. For those who have not yet attended one of these meetings please try to attend this one. It gives the young athletes the chance to compete against their peers and also to experience the atmosphere of a track event.
The results achieved at this event will be recorded as the WDAC Junior Championships.
Training session dates. The training sessions at Wrenn School coincide approximately with the school term dates, therefore the last sessions will be on Tuesday 14 and Thursday 16th July.
Training sessions will resume on Tuesday 14th and Thursday 16th September.
Saturday training at Croyland Park (starting date to be advised)
This will be every Saturday starting at 9:30 am, meet in the Kingsway car park.
Every Tuesday we are coached by Steve Stredwick. Also, there is a Junior Representative called Tony Burgess, so if you have any questions regarding the club then you can email him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Junior section of the club is for anybody from 8 years old up to 16. We have fully qualified coaches running each session to ensure child safety. Every week we train on a 200m track or a 400m track normally from March through to September depending on when it gets dark at night. We do different events from sprinting to long distance and sometimes field events e.g. javelin, discus etc. We also have access to a sports hall that we can use during the winter.
