WE HAVE A LONG WAITING LIST FOR MEMBERSHIP AND IT WILL BE SOME TIME BEFORE WE CAN INVITE ATHLETES TO THE CLUB.
Children in School Year 5 who have had their 10th birthday may register with the club and will be considered for membership after they join Year 6 and when we have suitable vacancies. We do not accept registrations from children under 10.
Athletes in School Years 6 to Year 8 will join a long waiting list and it will be several months, and often very much longer, before we can offer a trial place at the club, which will be when we have suitable vacancies. Athletes will be first invited to attend for three weeks to assess their effort and commitment. We do not offer trials to assess athletes' ability or potential.
Athletes in School Years 9 or above and Seniors may be very difficult to accommodate, particularly older beginners without recent athletics competitive experience.
We are not a road running club: Local running clubs will be able to better meet road runners' needs (e.g. Havering 90 Joggers, Harold Wood Runners).
While we still welcome enquiries from former/lapsed members of the club or established club athletes we will only be able to offer places where we have vacancies in current coaching groups and where we have proof of current fitness and evidence of any recent competitions.
PLEASE ALSO READ THE FOLLOWING GENERAL INFORMATION FIRST BEFORE CONTACTING US:
Our coaches and other helpers are volunteers who give up their time freely and without payment. In return, we expect athletes to be committed to the club by training regularly and competing for the club.
Our training nights are Mondays and Wednesdays, and we expect athletes to train at least weekly throughout the year. Competitions are held at weekends and we expect athletes to be available to compete for our teams. If you are committed to other sports at weekends which affect your commitment to compete for us then please don't join our waiting list.
TO REGISTER PLEASE EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org with the athlete's name, date of birth, parent contact details, school/college and event(s) they are interest in training for, along with details of any athletics competitive experience they have had in the past 12 months..
FOR ATHLETES AGED UNDER 18 WE CAN ONLY CORRESPOND WITH PARENTS/ CARERS, NOT ATHLETES, DUE TO SAFEGUARDING GUIDELINES
