Junior athletes practice in groups and are encouraged to take part in all athletic events: Jumps, Endurance, Sprints and Throws. This balance allows children to experience the whole range of events: many surprise themselves (and their parents!) with what they enjoy and are good at. As they get older they can focus on specific events or continue to focus on multi-sport events. After all, wouldn’t it be fantastic if Exeter Harriers had another Jo Pavey or discovered the next Jessica Ennis-Hill or Mo Farah. Please see the Junior Section page for more details.
PLEASE NOTE JUNIOR ATHLETES MUST BE COLLECTED BY A PARENT/GUARDIAN FROM THE CLUBHOUSE AFTER TRAINING AND NOT FROM ANY OTHER POINT.
Senior Training Groups (U15 Athletes & above) exist for the following disciplines;
Training times commence 7/7.15pm depending on the group. If you are planning to visit the club for the first time please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the options available to you, as some groups may already be full. The Welcome Desk Volunteers can then arrange a date for your first visit and introduce you to the appropriate coach. Finish times for the Senior training sessions vary according to content and weather conditions. Please ask the coach concerned who will be able to give you an indication of the finish time for a particular session.
The Senior Training Groups are focused on one of the above specialist disciplines with the aim of developing an athlete’s skills and fitness to become competitive in that discipline.
Athletes do not need to stay in one particular training group and are free to try other disciplines should they wish.
Athletes wishing to train for pentathlons, heptathlons, decathlons etc (multi-events) will, following a discussion with the multi-events coach, follow a training schedule which will incorporate training to cover all their required events, Please ask at the Welcome Desk for more information.
