What Is '5s and 6s' Athletics?
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.
As well as acquiring athletic skills through games and fun activities, some sessions will be taken by qualified athletic coaches. These coaches will provide demonstrations and will also offer advice to each athlete on ways to enhance their technique. The '5s and 6s' Club Champs held at the end of the season is an opportunity for athletes to compete in a friendly, safe environment. '5s and 6s' are also 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 2013 and the 31st of December 2014.
If your child was born on or after the 1st of January 2015, they will qualify for the ‘Tiny Tots’ section. If they were born before the 1st of January 2013, they will qualify for the ‘Junior’ section. Check our separate information sheets for these groups.
