Training

Summary

Training carries on all year round with a small break in September.  We split the year into summer and winter training schedules. If we have to cancel any sessions because of the weather, or for any other  reason, we will aim to put messages on our website and facebook pages.

Summer Training

From late March to early September we train outdoors on two evenings a week at either Imberhorne Upper School on Imberhorne Lane in East Grinstead or at Sackville School in East Grinstead.

All Tuesday and Thursday sessions run from 1900 to 2015 and are for school years 6 and above (including adult athletes).

Tuesday from late March to late April and then from mid August to early September at Imberhorne Upper School.

Tuesday from late April to mid August at Sackville School.

All Thursday sessions are at Imberhorne Upper School.

Saturday
We run the Academy (school years 4 and 5) on a Saturday from 11-mid-day at Imberhorne Upper School.  Spaces are limited so please contact secretary@eg-ac.co.uk to register your interest.

Winter Training

From early October to late March we train outdoors at Imberhorne Upper School on Imberhorne Lane in East Grinstead on Thursday evenings and at the East Court playing fields on Sunday mornings.

Thursday
1900 – 2015 : school years 6 and above
Sunday
1030 – 11.45 : open to all athletes at East Court Mansion.

We also have indoor circuit sessions during the winter.

Matches and Leagues

We compete in a number of leagues for our different age groups. We do need to make it clear that if your child comes to training regularly then we expect them to compete for us in these various league matches. If they do not compete regularly we may cancel their membership.

Training Fees

Training fees are £2 per session.  A season pass can be purchased in April which covers the year.

    Hi, my daughter, Poppy Newman is very interested in joining your athletics club for the forthcoming winter sessions. She will be 12 and in Year 8 at Imberhorne School. Please let me know if this is possible. Kind regards Heidi Weller

    Thanks for your enquiry about your daughter Poppy. At the moment, because of the virus, we are not sure what training we will be able to offer our members over the winter months. In past years we have had 3 winter sessions – Tuesday evenings indoors in the gym at Imberhorne Lower School, Thursday evenings outdoors at Imberhorne Upper School and Sunday mornings at East Court. We aren’t sure if or when the schools may allow us to re-start, although the East Court sessions could well re-start in October.

    Perhaps you could contact me again in early September when we have more idea of what training we can offer for the winter.
