What Is '5s and 6s' Athletics?
(Information updated August 2021)
The focus of our programme for 5 and 6 year olds is on developing correct fundamental athletic skills - running, jumping and throwing. Many of the activities will be presented as games and fun relays but all have basic athletic skill acquisition at their core. Emphasis is on skills and techniques relevant to sprints, shot put, discus and long/high jump.
'5s and 6s' keen on a bit of (age-appropriate) competition are encouraged to attend weekend Open Days held at other clubs throughout the season. These are advertised in our weekly newsletter.
'5s and 6s' caters for all girls and boys born between the 1st of January 2015 and the 31st of December 2016.
If your child was born on or after the 1st of January 2017, they will qualify for the ‘Tiny Tots’ section. If they were born before the 1st of January 2015, they will qualify for the ‘Junior’ section. Check the separate tabs on our website for information about these groups.
'5s and 6s' sessions are held on Wednesdays, 4.45 - 5.35 pm. First night for the 2021/22 season is WEDNESDAY 20th OF OCTOBER 2021 but new members welcome at any time.
The cost for the season (20th October 2021 to 30th March 2022) is $75 per child.
