Athletics is a year-round sport with indoor and outdoor seasons, and we train for both. Each training session attended costs £2 payable on the night. General information on the training, competitions and events that take place throughout the year is below.
Summer season training
Thursday Training – this takes place on the lower Henry Box field next to Lidl at 6.30 – 7.30 pm for the U9s & U11s, and 7.30 – 8.30 pm for the U13s & above. We usually move to the summer training times from the beginning of May. If it’s really wet we go in to the sports hall at Henry Box as per the times below, except during the holidays.
Tuesday Training –most weeks we have an additional training session at Radley College near Abingdon where we get to use the track facilities, and on some weeks a session is run on the Henry Box lower field. Tuesday training does not happen every week, but we keep everyone up to date using the Facebook page, and via Spond.
Winter Season Training
Thursday Training – this takes place in the Sports Hall at Henry Box School at 6.45 – 7.45 pm for the U9s & U11s, and 7.45 – 8.45 pm for the U13s and above.
Cross country training – this takes place on some Sunday mornings from 10 – 10.45am (watch out for dates in Spond and updates to the Facebook page for dates). We meet in the layby at the top of Tower Hill, and run in the Windrush Valley – prepare to get muddy! Parents are welcome to come (we would suggest wellies) and help marshall around the fields.
