LIST IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE NUMBERS ALREADY
athletes in Years 7 to 9, you can register your child but please
note that we
continue to have a long waiting list.
It will be at least
several months, and often much longer, before we can offer a place
at the club.
we have suitable vacancies, young athletes will be first invited to
a three week mutual trial to assess their effort and commitment.
Athletes in Years 6 & 7 are usually first placed in a young
athletes' training group which offers them the opportunity to
experience a range of athletics events.
Athletes in School Years 10 or above and Seniors
PLEASE ALSO READ THE FOLLOWING GENERAL INFORMATION FIRST:
All our coaches and other adult helpers at the club are volunteers
who give up their time freely and without payment. In return,
we expect athletes to be committed to the club.
Our training nights at Hornchurch Stadium are Mondays and
Wednesdays, and some groups also train on Sundays (by
invitation). We expect athletes to train regularly (at least weekly)
throughout the year.
Competitions are held at weekends and we expect athletes to compete
for club teams regularly. Athletes who do not
compete regularly will not be invited to renew their membership.
Sorry, but this isnít the club for athletes who are only interested
in training during the summer to keep fit for other sports (e.g.
hockey, football or rugby).
