We can now confirm that we shall be hiring Fisher More High School’s sports hall for indoor training on Monday evenings for the club’s Young Athletes’ group.
Training indoors will commence on MONDAY, 8 October, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. and will continue until the middle of MARCH 2019. Athletes using the facility will be charged £2.00 to cover the cost of the hire. Athletes should meet and be collected inside school and parents can be assured that an official from the club will remain at the school until all athletes have been collected. There will be some Mondays when we will not be allowed to use the school sportshall – half-term holidays and when the hall is used for mock exams but we will notify you of these dates.
Therefore, after, Monday, 1 October, the outdoor Monday sessions at Seedhill track for the Young Athletes’ Group will discontinue until March 2019, when we will return to the track. The Sprint, Endurance and Throws groups remain at Seedhill track throughout the winter and the Wednesday sessions for young athletes (7-8 p.m.) also continue at the track throughout the winter.
All children who wish to train with the club MUST be members; their details are stored on an England Athletics database which ensures they have insurance cover and the club also takes out extra cover in a Personal Accident insurance policy recommended by UK Athletics. The club will then also have full contact details, emergency contact details and any medical information which may need to be taken into consideration by club coaches.
Several young athletes have been training at Seedhill for a considerable time and have not returned their membership form with the annual membership fee. The forms need to be completed and the fee paid before we start indoor training at Fisher More; we must ensure that all athletes are on our database and have full insurance cover. Our coaches should not be coaching athletes who do not have insurance cover.
