We are delighted to announce our latest expansion, with the launch of our Junior Athletics Programme, for children aged 7-11.
WLTF Juniors is set to teach young athletes the fundamentals of Athletics (running, jumping, and throwing) in a bespoke, youth friendly format. Headed by JP Laurent, an experienced coach and educator, the exciting new programme will start October 30th.
A parent of three himself, JP's motivation for launching Junior Athletics is clear:
"Watching my children standing in long lines, waiting for a turn, or even worse, sat down for 5 minutes at a time in a coaching session has led to a lot of frustration in the last 10 years."
"So many parents I have spoken to have been equally frustrated with waiting lists, age restrictions, and unnecessary 'trials' in a sport which is should be so attractive to youngsters. These are some of the issues that have motivated me to launch West London Track & Field Juniors."
"We look forward to providing a consistently high quality coaching service that will introduce children to the key concepts of running, throwing and jumping, and inspire them to get involved in Athletics. These fundamentals can be transferred to movement skills used in many other sports."
Sessions will take place on Mondays at Lightwater Lesiure Centre, Years 3 & 4 will run from 4-5pm, and Years 5 & 6 from 5-6pm.
