Junior Academy – Athletics 365

Mendip AC Junior Academy (MAC JAC)

the junior academy venue is the sportshall to the rear of Crispin School, Street accessed by a gate to the left side of the reception and following clear signs to the sportshall. Please try to be there just before 6:30pm.

There will be a register taken and some may have to pay if they have not joined.

Pupils will be grouped according to ability as some have been on the program for a year already.

The Course

All pupils will follow a brand new national course called  365 Athletics. Each pupil will be given a folder and DVD to reinforce learning on the night a swell as a clear picture of the route to moving up the levels. We think its AMAZING and is perfect for school year 5-9 children that are serious about sport in general as well as more specific track and field athletics skills.

Each Thursday session starts at 6 precisely so that pupils can warm up properly and receive instruction.

After a warm up there are two 20 minute sessions with coaches followed by a warm down activity.

The main objectives are to gain fundamental skills in running, jumping and throwing.

* Please make sure your child has all necessary equipment for all types of weather as well as a bottle of water.

* Coaches also expect athletes to have the right attitude to learning new skills by listening to detailed instruction.
