Youth development 

Mondays: Two sessions: 5.30-6.30pm and 6.30-7.30pm in Oakgrove School, Middleton (using Athletics 365). Contact David Millett. Prior booking required.  This is the ideal starting point.

However, we aim to provide a progressive pathway for athletes.  Specific sessions will also be scheduled outside these times. These arrangements are made by mutual agreement and are a progression towards a more tailored programme, before event specialisation takes place.  They often involve working with a variety of coaches.  There are opportunities across all events.

Training content

The content of training is based upon Athletics 365 principles and curriculum. Our intention is to enable athletes to progress to identified levels, building skills and physical conditioning.
