Sessions For Ages 5-8

Fundamental Fitness & Athletics For Ages 5-8 years - a strong grounding for their future


These fitness and athletics sessions are tailored to help children develop a strong grounding for their future, no matter what sport they choose. All sessions are led by fully qualified UKA athletics coaches, with a vast amount of experience and knowledge.

Sessions are based around structured games that encourage key technical points whilst still being fun and engaging for the children. They will develop their 6 key fundamental movements before progressing onto more specific training qualities including; agility, balance, co-ordination, endurance, flexibility, speed and strength. We will also cover a variation of a range of athletic events.
