The club has a very active young athletes section for children aged between 9 and 16, and offers opportunities to compete in teams all year round, supported by coach-led training sessions. Our approach is to be competitive, with an emphasis on enjoyment and team spirit.
From autumn until spring our young athletes compete in two cross country leagues – Metropolitan League and North West London Young Athletes League – plus County, Area and National championships.
In the spring and summer, the focus is on track and field, with the club competing in the Middlesex Young Athletes League, plus indoor and outdoor County championships and inter-club competitions.
The club has a a large team of experienced coaches and assistants working with young athletes. They lead training sessions in all aspects of athletics, including sprinting, running, jumping and throwing. All are UKA qualified and DBS checked.
The Young Stags meet on:
- Tuesday evenings at Allianz Park for a track-based session;
- Thursday evenings at New Barnet Leisure Centre (endurance) and at Allianz Park (sprints/jumps); and
- Saturday mornings at Trent Park (if there is not a competition that day
