In this class, our athletics based activities emphasise teamwork, competition and social interaction. Through team participation and working together children’s confidence grows session to session. If this is your child’s first experience of Mini Athletics then they may be less willing to join in with other members of their team. This is normal and usually only occurs for the first few weeks while children are getting used to each other. By week 3-4 children are co-operating together.
First session - free taster Directions: The Centre is on Copleston Road, in between Avondale Rise and Danby Street. This is a 8-10 minute walk from Goose Green /East Dulwich or from Peckham Rye Station. There will be a Mini Athletics Banner outside to help you find it. There is a link to the google maps here
Parking: There is free parking on all the surrounding streets but please allow a bit of extra time to find a space as the streets are often quite busy with parked cars.
Clothing: We will be running around so sports shoes and comfortable clothing would be best
Refreshments: Please bring a bottle of water for your athlete. All this running around is thirsty work! Short water breaks are included in the sessions to keep athletes hydrated.
Parent Participation: Parents/carers/responsible adults need to be present at every class.
Parent participation is needed in our youngest class during the first few sessions. Our coaching team help parents to encourage children to participate within the structure of the class. Very often it takes 2-3 weeks for children to become familiar with the class routine. However, with parental support, patience and guidance they soon become independent members of the class and have so much fun!
