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.
Directions: The centre is situated at the top end of Melvin Road, closer to the A213 then Maple road. There will be a Mini Athletics Banner up to help you find it.
Parking: There is free parking on Melvin Road and most of the surrounding streets
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 sometimes needed (especially with our younger classes). 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!
