Special Taster Sessions

Our ‘Saturday Club’ taster sessions run most weeks, 10am until noon and cover a wide range of track and field activities and events. Our special sessions follow a theme and help athletes to try different areas of the sport, such as cross country, or become involved in topical activities, such as fundraising and Glasgow 2014.

Saturday Club Themes

Children In Need Saturday 9th November
Join us for a family fun run, sponsored tyre pull and a some games to play as well as our usual athletics activities!

Cross Country Saturday 23rd November
On the 24th of November, there is a local Cross Country competition at Campsall, with events for ages 8 upwards, right up to over 65s! We’ll host a mixed Taster Session the day before, with anyone wanting to try Cross Country able to try out a realistic course as well as pick up a few tips.

Christmas Camp! Saturday 28th December
While it’s the holidays we’re putting on a special one-day camp for Children aged 8-15 to come along and try out a variety of events. Click here for more information.

Welcome to 2014 Saturday 11th January and Saturday 1st February
As with all sports, setting and beating targets is the basis of Athletics, so in this special session we’ll ask all our athletes to pick a New Year’s Resolution to help them improve in an event. Over the next few weeks we’ll try to coach all the events chosen and in the second session we’ll see who has smashed their target!

Commonwealth Day Special Saturday 8th March
Glasgow 2014 is the next big event! 71 teams will be competing in Scotland soon, but we’ll split our Athletes into England, Wales and Scotland who will compete against each other in a run, a throw and a jump to find out the overall winner!

London Marathon Special Saturday 19th April
Our middle and long distance coaches will take over this week as we look at different events, including road running, as well as performing the classic running-through-the-tape over the finish line!
