Yate Athletics Academy

The Academy, in accordance with UK Athletic guidelines. is committed to providing coaching in the majority of the athletic disciplines. This approach gives young athletes the broad base of abilities to allow them to compete in a wider range of events before specialising at a later date. Whilst it is accepted athletes should not specialise too early we also recognise  that, no matter how interesting we make the sessions, some do not have to interest or aptitude for all events. In these cases we are always available to review the young athletes  expectations. The Academy accepts athletes from the age of 8 to 15 and cost £3.00 each session, on a pay as you go basis, there is no need to pre or block book, all though we encourage regular attendance to maintain progress. The session takes place at the Yate Outdoor Sports Centre, which could be the athletes first opportunity to run, jump and throw at a ‘proper’ stadium, is an hour long starting at 7.30 with a group warm up and then athletes go into their age specific groups for coaching in that evenings activity, which varies each week. New athletes join in the group warm up and are then put into their age specific coaching group with which they will remain. The Academy can be used as a stepping stone for younger athletes who, when ready are invited to Tuesday and Thursday Club nights, but can also be used by developing athletes as an extra nights coaching, to maintain their multi event experience. Should you be thinking of your child trying athletics give one of the contacts below a call for a chat, weather you are looking for fun, fitness or something more competitive, this could be the start of something special!
