Juniors

 

 

 

 

 

The Junior section of the club is now accepting new members.  Guest membership is free for the first four sessions.
If you could go onto our website and download a Junior Guest Form, fill it in and bring it on your first visit that will save time.

The Junior section of the club is for anybody from 9 years old up to 16. We have fully qualified coaches running each session to ensure child safety.  Every week we train on 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.

You can find more details on our membership pages or send an email to juniors@wdac.org.uk for more information.

Our junior members meet at Wrenn School, Doddington Road, Wellingborough, NN8 2JJ (MAP) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 - 8:00pm.  The final training session for the summer term will be on Thursday 14th July.  Training will resume on Tuesday 6th September.
