Who are we? We operate as the Youth section of Somer Athletic Club.
What do we do? We run fun & friendly athletics sessions for children of all abilities, aged 13 -18 years. We train every Thursday from 7.30 pm - 8.30 pm. All our sessions are run by qualified coaches, trained to England Athletics/UKA standards (Leader in Running Fitness, Coaching Assistant & Athletics Coach). The current maximum number we allow per session is 30, with a minimum of three coaches.
What about the parents? This also provides a great opportunity to allow parents/adults to run with Somer AC (Somer Runners), while their children are having fun with us!
How do we find out about the sessions? All our sessions are managed via the ClubPal (link below). Membership is by invitation only, this is to keep our young athletes safe & manage our high demand for places.
Do I keep my place? Yes, your childs place is guaranteed once registered, until you decide otherwise or your child exceeds the age limit of 18 years and hopefully moves to our Senior group. If a period of non-attendance does occur, we will contact you to make sure all is well.
What does it cost? We charge just £2 per session & £15 Annual membership, payable in termly blocks using ClubPal.
What do they need to bring? Simple, a water bottle, trainers (worn) & a warm hoodie or coat in colder weather.
