Youth Athletics

This exciting program caters for children 8-13 years of age. The Kids Athletics Program was developed by the IAAF with the aim of introducing young children to athletics in a basic, attractive, accessible and instructive manner. The objectives of the program are to introduce kids to all aspects of athletics in a non-threatening, fun way that is specific to the ages of the children.

The Kids Athletics Development Program started in late February 2012 and our young athletes took part in their first event on Saturday 25 February 2012. Since then they have participated in events regularly, the most notable being the African National Cross Country Championships, the Two Oceans 5K and the Cross Country Relay. The average attendance at training sessions is over 40 and numbers are growing!
