Training and Coaching


The purpose of the general training session is to provide an opportunity for athletes to build their general fitness base in a fun environment. Parents are welcome to train with their children. Opportunities for event specific training will also be provided throughout the year.

In 2019-20, we have been lucky enough to bring in event specific coaches as well as a NEW u6-u8 General Training program. We have introduced a specific training program for u6-u8 to have their own training time, these sessions will build on skills for all events and will rotate events each week to ensure there is variety in training. We recommend if you’re attending event specific training that all athletes keep in contact with your coaches as they will may need to cancel last minute due to work/ family reasons, not all occasions will the club be able to communicate this.

Training will begin Tuesday 2nd October through to March 25th, 2020.

Training will have break over Christmas with our final training session on Wednesday 11th December and will commence again Monday 20th January.

All Coaches are volunteers, please understand that they are taking time out of their work/ lives to coach your kids. Some are just beginning in the world of coaching, some have more experience but please treat them with respect and remember, this isn’t the Olympics. If you have any questions or concerns please speak with Director of Coaching Nathan Dux.

Bad weather: Please monitor the Croydon Little Athletics Facebook page for updates on any potential cancellations of training due to bad weather.
