Harrogate Harriers Training - *UPDATE* 6th June 2020

Some of the Harrogate Harriers Junior coaches have started training sessions and the Junior Chair, Chris Forrest wanted to make sure everyone has been made aware of the England Athletics guidelines.

It is important HHJuniors adhere to a max of 1 coach and 5 athletes per training session and social distancing rules, particularly since none of our venues are open yet so we can only use public spaces (please do not use Pannal Football Club). To be clear 2 coaches and 10 athletes will not be permitted.

As a club our athletes and volunteers wellbeing is paramount and we must insist that if a junior athlete attends a session their parent or guardian must be present at all times through the session for now. if you turn up at any session where there is more than 1 coach and 5 athletes present please do not attend.

To attend a session contact the coaches directly when they email to advertise what they are offering.

As lockdown starts to ease, we will update more regularly.


Weekly Training Sessions

All of the training sessions are supervised by qualified coaches, with the assistance of qualified coaching assistants, young leaders and volunteer parents. We also arrange for experienced athletics coaches from other Clubs to help lead some training sessions.

We need to control numbers in each of the training groups so all are by invitation from the coaches. Venues and times are made available to those invited to the various groups.

Please check your email, or SPORTLYZER for any changes or cancellation notices.
