Track and Field

Our junior section trains at the Dorothy Hyman track on a Tuesdays and Thursdays 6pm-8pm. We
can coach children from age 8.
Children will need to become a member of Barnsley AC within the first month of attending training.
Our junior membership costs are on our website and are currently £28.00 per year and this includes England Athletics registration.
Children are encouraged to enter competitions, especially the team events, as this supports the club and helps children develop. The competitions are age appropriate and suit all abilities, to enter these club vests must be worn and these can be purchased (see our Kit page).
An additional track fee is also payable to Dorothy Hyman (BPL) either per session or monthly
membership. This is for use of their track and not Barnsley AC charges.
Due to safeguarding it is preferred that Parents/Guardians/Carers remain onsite whilst training takes place unless alternative arrangements are agreed in advance with the coaching staff, but this must be in exceptional circumstances. All children must be accompanied to the track at the start of each session and collected from the track side at 8pm.
Junior training generally continues throughout the year and in all weathers. Please make sure that your child comes properly dressed in warm clothes when the weather is cold – gloves, track suit and hat, and in cool clothes when the weather is warm – shorts and T-shirt. Children should wear trainers and have a non-fizzy drink available. Running spikes are recommended but not essential.
Parents are also encouraged to get involved with the club where possible as this benefits your child and the club.
Thank you in advance for your support
