Loughton Athletic Club run sessions specifically designed to involve children
in athletics.

For girls and boys aged 8 – 11 inclusive

Winter programme

Sessions take place on the all-weather surface next to the tennis courts on Tuesdays from 7pm to 8pm and we welcome children of all abilities. Sessions are run by qualified England Athletics coaches and include warm-up, drills, a running activity and warm-down. All coaches are DBS checked.

Summer programme

Sessions are as above but take place on the all-weather surface or on the grass track in the field beyond the children’s playground (see Training page for map).

We welcome families and it is common for parents to join the adult training session while their children are taking part in the kids’ training session. Parents will finish their training session in time to collect their children.

Children aged 12 and over train with the adult groups. See Training for more information.

Please complete the application form to join. You are welcome to come along to a trial session before committing to membership.

The cost of training is covered by the annual subscription. However, we ask for a donation of £1 per athlete per session to cover the cost of the installation of the all-weather  training surface.
