Junior Development Pathway

Chorley Athletic and Triathlon club have adopted the UKA development pathway for its juniors. Training sessions have been devised to ensure junior athletes are offered as many athletic activities as possible i.e. running, jumping, throwing, cycling and swimming.

The development pathway can be viewed here.

Waiting Lists

Due to popular demand, some of our junior training sessions are currently full. If you would like to go on the waiting list please email details (name, age, email) to juniors@chorley-athletic-and-triathlon.org. We have recently expaned our capability and capacity, so the waiting lists are much shorter than it has been for the last few years.

Juniors wishing to join the club must make contact with a coach or the waiting list manager before coming to any sessions.

Club Rules

The Junior Committee are in the process of producing an information handbook for all juniors and parents. This should be available for the new club year in April. These are some basics they feel all parents & juniors need to adhere to from now on, to make sure juniors, and coaches, are safe.

  • All athletes must be signed in by parent/ responsible adult.
  • Training fees are due at the beginning of each session apart from swimming and cycling sessions, these are due at the beginning of each half term.
  • All athletes must be collected from the training venue at the end of each training session. This is important so that we can avoid any safeguarding incidents.
  • If your child cannot attend any session you must report their non-attendance via this email address juniors@chorley-athletic-and-triathlon.org The register administrators will monitor all absences through this address.
  • As there is now a waiting list, we have introduced the rule as follows: If you do not attend for 4 weeks without notifying the club then your place will be offered to the next child on the waiting list.
  • All athletes must try and compete in at least 1 club event each year. A full and varied list of events are available through the web site or attached to each newsletter. A separate email will be sent regarding events
  • All athletes should attend training session in club kit (i.e. t-shirt); this is subject to the availability of kit. There is a small amount of kit available for those aged Year 6 & above from parent volunteer Melanie Singleton
  • Attendance

    Review attendance of parents in the sportshall if capacity is full by all 3 or 4 Teams, due to weather, so that activities can take place safely, both for the athlete and parent. This is particularly important if we have throw sessions and some run sessions.

    Athlete to notify coach of any injury immediately so that adjustments or plan B can be implemented. This may be that you attend another Team session or even sit it out. It is not worth making it worse.

    Holidays

    We will close for (these are subject to change and will be confirmed a month ahead nearer the time)

  • 2 weeks at Christmas and New Year (according to school holidays)

  • Easter from Maunday Thursday to past that Bank Holiday.
