Training

Beginners: Children aged 8 – 11 years

For children new to athletics, Harrow AC runs a fun trial to assess speed, endurance, throwing and jumping.

The trial…

  • Helps us to understand your child’s ability and needs
  • Is conducted by one of our voluntary coaches
  • May also be attended by our coaching assistants

Your child will have a lot of fun doing the trial and learn a lot about their athletic ability in the process. There’s nothing to lose so come along on a Monday!
