ADAC encourage youngsters to become active in the sport of athletics, we have a team of qualified coaches who work with young people on a wide range of athletic events to help them develop and improve as athletes. With the younger athletes the emphasis is on fun and taking part.
We do not focus solely on a single discipline with our young athletes, instead using Athletics 365 we encourage them to try a wide variety of events and work to develop all round athletic skills.
We do encourage competition and take part in Track and Field events/ League meetings, Club Competitions, Sports Hall and Cross Country.
As the athletes develop, we will continue to encourage multi-event training; however we will also help to develop specific disciplines and encourage each athlete achieve their personal goals.
Although England Athletics operate and age badning system, we work to develop athletes depending upon their own physical abilities. Our focus as a club with our youngsters is on participation and enjoyment, respect and tollerance are placed high on our agenda.
