Athletics Training

Every Thursday night from 6pm to 7pm for under 11s and 7pm to 8pm for under 13s and above at East Point Academy, Kirkley Run, Lowestoft. Our more serious, higher level athletes are also invited to train on Mondays from 6pm to 7pm for U11s and U13s and above during winter and 6pm to 8pm for under 13s and above during summer.

We train athletes from 8 years old, and currently train in groups of U11s, U13s, U15s, through to Seniors. Please be aware we do have a waiting list for some of our younger age categories.

During the winter we usually train in the sports hall, but also undertake road and beach running for all athletes, with some of the older or more endurance focused athletes undertaking more of this and longer distances. We broadly follow Athletics 365, and as such the Athletes train in all athletics disciplines and do not specialise until they are competent in all areas or reach U15 level. When outdoors, athletes will learn drills, train in sprints, endurance, long, triple and high jumps and also shot put and javelin.

Each summer our athletes compete in the East Anglian League, Eastern Young Athletes League and also the Suffolk/Norfolk Quadkids League. Our athletes also compete to collect County titles at the Suffolk County Championships in Ipswich.

In the winter we compete in the Suffolk Sportshall League. Our athletes collected many team and individual trophies, going on to represent Suffolk in the Regional Sportshall competition.

We welcome new members, and offer 2 free taster sessions.
