This site aims to inform youngsters and their parents or guardians about the junior side of the Club.

Reigate Priory Athletic Club Junior Section provides training, coaching and competition in all forms of athletics (track & field, cross-country and road running) for anyone aged between 8 and 17, at all levels from beginner to national standard, within a supportive and friendly environment. We take children from the September they enter school year 4. We welcome people of all abilities, whether you just fancy ‘having a go’, want to compete at local level or have aspirations to compete in major national championships. We have a full programme of training throughout the year to suit all abilities. We do though ask that members are committed to representing the Club. We are a local athletics club not an after school club. The Coaches are club members who want to see the Club put out large and strong teams in all the Junior competitions and leagues we participate in.

We have a large and very successful junior section that is growing year on year. There are approximately 150 junior members, encompassing a wide range of ability, experience and level of ambition. We consistently have Athletes representing Surrey at both cross country and track and field events at various age groups.

All members receive structured coaching in a number of different training groups. The sessions are led by UK Athletics qualified coaches who have been on safeguarding courses and have been DBS checked.

The Club is very popular and is currently oversubscribed and having to operate a waiting list.


For those children too young to join Reigate Priory Athletic Club, or for whom we currently do not have places, we strongly recommend a local organisation called Athletix Kidz. Athletix Kidz is a play based organisation offering programmes for 2 1/2 - 10 year olds, providing enthusiastic coaching sessions involving running and jumping activities whilst having lots of fun. They can be contacted via their website https://athletixkidz.com .

Training

Junior training takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Saturday morning. See the Coaching and Training page for more details.

What we expect of juniors

All we ask is that the juniors enjoy themselves, keep smiling and listen to the coaches.

The coaches

The coaches ensure that the training suits the runner’s ability and they will help you improve and achieve your goals.
