Juniors competing on the track

Waverley Harriers has an active Juniors athletics section for children. Our training sessions and coaching are provided by Waverley 365 at a reasonable termly cost. Waverley 365 provide coaching to children in school years 5 through to 11 across several sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. If your child is interested in joining, please contact Bill Bingham at Waverley 365 using this enquiries form. Senior members who have children in the Juniors section receive a discounted annual membership fee.

By being part of the umbrella Waverley Harriers club, which is affiliated to England Athletics, the children have the opportunity to compete in several events each year. During the summer, we compete at four fixtures in the Wessex Track and Field League. During the winter we compete in four cross country fixtures as part of the Border Cross Country League and several indoor sports-hall athletics fixtures at the Spectrum in Guildford.

Our philosophy

IMG_5621sChildren of all ages, like us all, need to be active for a healthy and happy life. At Waverley Harriers our young athletes are encouraged to enjoy a wide ranging series of exercises and activities.

Waverley 365, who provide coaching services to our Juniors, follow the highly successful Athletics 365 development programme which provides stages of progression for the children. The Athletics 365 programme introduces children to the fundamental skills of athletics (vital for every sport), focussing on developing the technical skills required to perform at full potential. More information can be found on the Athletics 365 website.

Waverley Harriers is committed to ensuring that all members can participate in club activities in an enjoyable and safe environment. Please see our Safeguarding Policy for more information.
