The Academy is for graduates from the 7Upsandovers as well as for new athletes aged 11-14 (Under 13-Under 15 in terms of competition), and follows the UK Athletics (UKA) 365 model, providing a fun and friendly environment for athletes to train and become proficient in running, jumping and throwing. The coaches value effort over innate talent and the emphasis is on helping athletes to do their best and feel proud of their achievements, however they expect a commitment to competing for the club a minimum of six times a year.
This is a very popular group and in order to keep the numbers within safe limits, there is often a waiting list. The coaches run an assessment session on the first Tuesday of each month, by arrangement. This is not to assess ability, but for athletes and their parents to find out more about the group and decide whether they are able to make the required commitment.
