THE TIGERS train on a Sunday morning from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. The age range for Tigers is from 7 to 11 years old.
To join Bexley AC as a Tiger it costs £30 per year plus a track fee per training session of:
The Tigers have fun and try out different aspects of athletics under the supervision of qualified coaches. When they are old enough (usually Year 6 and above ) the Coaches will normally move them up to the next group which is coached on a Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:00 – 7:15 PM. There are sessions for Year 6 upwards on the weekday training sessions. Here they learn more about training and competition and train differently with a view to encouraging them to become competitive athletes and realise their potential in the longer term.
NOTE:- Very occasionally on a Sunday Tigers training is cancelled because an event is taking place and the track is occupied. If the coach has your contact details they will do their utmost to contact you or tell you in advance. At the same time, however, it is suggested that you check recent news and check (and like!) our Facebook page.
Parents please note: Recently a number of parents are arriving very late and it is extremely difficult for the coaches, once training has started, to break off from the other children to go and register late arrivals. Please try to arrive a few minutes before 10:00 AM on a Sunday. Similarly, Coaches are there to coach the children and do not have the time to make cups of tea for parents or serve refreshments, and certainly not once training has started. If there are any parents who wish to volunteer to do this whilst they are waiting at the track please do speak to the Coaches; volunteers are always welcome.
