Round up of what has been happening.



We have been invited to take part in the Gloucestershire Sportshall League and we are looking for athletes who would like to get involved and some volunteers to help make it happen!

We can enter teams in the U11 (school years 4 and 5); U13 (school years 6 and 7); and U15 (school years 8 and 9) age groups.

Sportshall is an indoor form of track and field athletics for junior athletes taking place during the winter months in the warmth of a sports hall. Athletes take part in lots of different events such as standing long jump/triple jump, speed bounce, sprint races, shot put, obstacle relay, hurdles, javelin etc. It’s a lot of fun and a friendly competitive opportunity for those involved, giving a focus for the quieter early winter months.

Our academy coaches will be able to provide training for the athletes in all the Sportshall events but we are looking for a willing volunteer or volunteers, maybe a parent, who would be able to act as a team manager(s). This would simply be liaising with the academy coaches about the athletes in the team, communicating with parents/athletes all the relevant information, and supporting the athletes at the competitions.

The Gloucestershire League dates are:
Sunday 10th November - Rednock School, Dursley
Sunday 24th November - Brockworth Sportshall Centre
Sunday 15th December - Cheltenham Leisure Centre

The other clubs that take part in this league are Cheltenham, Gloucester, Forest of Dean, Tewkesbury and Dursley.

Please get in touch ASAP if you think you can help us provide our young athletes with this new and exciting opportunity. We have to confirm with the league by 1st October.

Please also let us know if your child would like to be part of the team!

Send us a message, speak to one of the academy coaches, or email

Very good club extremely professional

My daughter started athletics unattached to a club, she started attending 2 different clubs, but settled with yate. This was mainly due to super friendly, approachable coaches. The coaches at yate have been fantastic at supporting the start of her journey, by giving her lots of support at trying out all the individual sports to see which she enjoys the most! Highly recommend this club of your thinking of joining
