The Junior section of the club is fully subscribed.  Applications for membership will open on the 1st April 2018.

Guest membership is free for the first four sessions.
If you could go onto our website and download a Junior Guest Form, fill it in and bring it on your first visit that will save time.

The Junior section of the club is open to anyone from 9 to 16 years old. We have fully qualified coaches running each session to ensure child safety.  From Easter through to September we train on a 400m track, depending on when it gets dark at night.  The training sessions include sprinting to long distance running and field events e.g. long jump and javelin. We also have access to a sports hall that we can use during the winter.

You can find more details on our membership pages or send an email to juniors@wdac.org.uk for more information.
