Mendip AC Junior Academy (MAC JAC)

The Junior Academy venue is in the sports hall to the rear of Crispin School, Street accessed by a gate to the left side of the reception and following clear signs to the sports hall. Please try to be there just before .

There will be a register taken and training consent forms to be completed if your first visit.
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.

We think it’s AMAZING and it 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 6.15 precisely so that pupils can warm up properly and receive instruction.
Please try to be there just before.

After a warm up there are two 20minute 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.
