Frequently asked questions

What if my child is too young, can they still attend?

Unfortunately we cannot take children who are younger that 8 due to insurance reasons

Can I book one day only?

No, the courses are two-day courses. If your child can only make one day, you will still need to pay the £30 fee.

What does my child need to bring?

This is an outdoor activity so please check the weather on the day of the course and send your child with appropriate clothing - sunscreen if it's hot, a hat and plenty of drinks. You child will need a packed lunch - enough to keep them going throughout the day as they will be using up a lot of energy!

What if my child has a disability or requires medication?

There is an area on the booking form which asks for this information so we are aware of your child's needs before the course starts. If you have any concerns, please contact Paul Evans (details below)

If I need to cancel my place, am I entitled to a refund?

Places will not be refunded within 7 days of the start of the course. Payment must be made in advance.

What happens on the course?

Children are put into groups, usually according to their age. Each group will be assigned to a couple of coaches and they all have a go at the different athletics disciplines. On day two of the course, there will be a fun competition at the end of the day, where the children get to practice their new skills in a relay race.
