JUNIOR SECTION INTRODUCTION
“Don’t dream of winning, train for it!” — Mo Farah
Are your children keen on running ?
Are you worried about them keeping fit ?
Werrington Joggers run a Junior Section for Boys and Girls aged between 9 - 18 years with an interest in running and athletics. Our aim is to lay a foundation in this sport through events and games in a safe, fun, friendly learning environment. This will help to build a platform that will enable our members to specialise in the future if they wish to do so.
We meet on Tuesday evenings between 6pm - 6.55pm at the Werrington Sports Centre.
Membership is £15 per annum (October - September), The membership fee is refundable if after 2 weeks your child does not wish to continue.
Your children will receive instruction from UK Athletics qualified coaches and by joining they will become part of a growing running community within Peterborough. They will also have access to Road, Cross Country and Sportshall Athletics.
PLEASE NOTE There will be no Werrington juniors during August as this will be our summer break
Junior Induction Evenings
During the year we run a number of Induction Evenings when new members can join our club.
Inductions will take place on the following dates.
These take place on a Tuesday evening during our usual club night from 6pm and will last around 45 minutes. During the induction we will cover a range of topics such as the best time to eat before a session, injuries, clothing, competition and behaviour. PLEASE NOTE: A PARENT/CARER MUST ATTEND THIS INDUCTION WITH THEIR CHILD.
We hope you will consider joining our friendly local club and we look forward to seeing you and your child at our next induction.
For any further information prior to the next Induction evening please contact Louise Richardson
Would parents please help us make best use of the limited space in the hall by only coming into the room if there is a specific need to do so. Can we also please remind parents and carers to collect their children promptly by 6:55pm on Tuesdays. Coaches are reluctant to leave juniors in the foyer of the centre, but equally they have commitments with the seniors who meet and run after the junior session, Thank-you.
When we have the dark evenings please wear bright or reflective tops.
Our Juniors have the opportunity to take part in a number of competitions every year, Junior Frostbite Races, Club Championship League, Mile Runs, Local Fun Runs, A Summer Handicap Series, Sportshall competitions etc.
For more information about each of the above please click on the Junior Home tab and choose the race that you are interested in.
