11-15s Athletic Development Group

“Continuing your athletic journey”

Lead Coach – Andy Fraser

Coaching Assistants- Andy Cross, Karen Jordan.

Welcome to the Athletic Development Group.  We aim to build on the skills learned from the foundation group and to enable athletes to specialise in a preferred discipline or to continue with several events as desired.  We cover most run, jumps and throws activities but we have strong links with other groups within the club, particularly the Young Endurance Group, and some members take part in sessions with both groups.

“We compete in a variety of athletic events”

Our group is more strongly focused on preparing athletes for competition at an appropriate level for each child.  Throughout the year we compete in indoor athletics competitions, cross country, athletics open meetings and the and regional and national championships.  Wirral AC are also the only athletic club on the Wirral who compete in the Youth Development League, the UK’s premier junior athletics league.  To this end, our group gets very involved in the team aspect of athletics and encouraging each other to do their best for #TeamWirralAC.

“Fun with friends supporting #TeamWirralAC”

We have group members who are regional and northern champions at many events but the group emphasis is on team spirit, encouragement and mutual respect.  Our aim is to develop athletes to the best of their ability whatever that may be and to support each other in achieving our goals.  We would love you to come and join our group and have fun being a part of #TeamWirralAC!

Come and see us at 6.45pm Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Oval Track.
