Juniors

At Maidenhead A.C we have a flourishing juniors' section, which is growing year on year. The main aim is - TO HAVE FUN.

 

We are an Active Sports Club and have achieved Clubmark. All juniors are coached in all aspects of athletics from sprinting to endurance and from long jump to discus. During the summer months we are members of the Alder Valley Track and Field League. We also encourage athletes to enter open competitions and county championships. During the winter the club enters teams in the Chiltern Cross-Country League and Sportshall.

Due to the increase in demand for junior places at Maidenhead Athletic Club we currently have a waiting list in place. Entry onto the waiting list is available to children aged 7 and above. We regret having to resort to this, but demand in our Junior section is currently at an all-time high.

 

PLEASE NOTE : Athletics is not just a summer sport. We train all year and year-round attendance at training sessions is expected. In the summer we compete mainly in the Alder Valley league and in the winter we compete at Sportshall and Cross-country. Should you be invited to join Maidenhead Athletic Club after a trial, we think it fair to point out that if sessions are missed for a prolonged interval a club place will not be held open. This policy is in place to ensure that we are able to control our waiting list.

 

Interested parties should send an email to Junior Section Administration to register themselves, completing the information requested. 

 

Waiting list - current status (September 2013)

Since the beginning of 2013 we have lost 3 coaches. By the end of our summer training term (July) we will have lost an additional 3. In that time frame we have only been able to recruit 1 coach to be incorporated into our coaching rota from September.

This has had a huge impact on our ability to deliver quality coaching to our existing athletes.

The knock-on effect is  that we have been unable to invite any athletes from the waiting list this year. We appreciate that this is very frustrating for those of you on the waiting list, but our first priority is always athlete safety. Regrettably, at this time we do not have any plans to invite any athletes from the waiting list for the foreseeable future.
