As part of our Monday and Thursday general summer coaching programme we are able to offer outdoor track and field athletics at Ghyll Royd School (Monday) and the Ilkley Grammar School playing fields (Thursday). We are able to do Hurdles, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Hammer, Javelin, Shot, Discus as well as track running (sprinting) and relays. All these activities are outside whatever the weather, so a waterproof coat and a sence of humour are essential!
We also do more specific indoor Track & Field coaching sessions at Ghyll Royd School during the winter on a Tuesday for those athletes who want to compete. This includes Jumping (long, triple and high), throwing (shot, discus and javelin) and hurdle drills.
Junior Ilkley Harriers do not compete in any national Track & Field Leagues but we do encourage our athletes to compete at local friendly meets. We have listed a number of meets below that we think you'd like to have a go at in 2013 and £2 per meet will be refunded at the end of the season. Entry forms will be at club training sessions or on the appropriate website. AAA common standard cloth badges and certificates will be presented at the junior presentation evening in April 2014.
