Training With Preston Harriers
Athletics games, sprints, jumps, relays and throws. This is a fun session, but learning the basics at the same time. There are opportunities to compete as part of a team, and to take part in Sportshall Athletics during the winter. Your performances are recorded throughout the year, and everyone gets a certificate and badge at the presentation disco.
For Under 15's
We prefer you not to specialize. General coaching sessions cover the basics of middle distance, sprints, hurdles, relays, long jump, high jump, triple jump, shot, hammer, discus and javelin. We run an induction group that involves 2 throws, 2 jumps, and 2 track sessions to coach basics and identify ability, before you move into more advanced groups.
Additional specialized coaching is available for athletes who want to progress further, and are 13 or over.
Awards are given at the end of the season, based on the years' performances.
