PLEASE CHECK THE MESSAGE BOARD FOR THE LATEST INFORMATION
For new juniors to the club, we operate the following basic guidelines for joining:
• 0 to 5 years: Sorry, we do not have any sessions for these ages. Many clubs will not accept children until they are 8-years-old.
• 6 to 8 years: FUNdamentals session (on Sunay). Once an athlete reaches the age of 9, they will have the opportunity to move up to a Foundation session.
• 9 to 12+ years: Foundation sessions (on Sunday and Thursday). Athletes may be transferred from a Foundation session to a Development group and have the opportunity to attend other development sessions e.g. throwing, jumping, etc. Such movement will be based on the athlete's ability, willingness to compete, space in target sessions and only if the athlete consents.
• 13 to 16 years: Please contact the club to discuss what will be best for the athlete.
In general, junior athletes should experience a wide range of athletic disciplines initially, and then many will choose to focus on specific events as they move through their teenage years e.g. sprints, endurance running, throwing and jumping.
From the 1st September 2018 a new junior training payment system will be in place. Click Junior Standing Order for more information.
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.

When old enough to do so, juniors are expected to complete at least three times per year e.g. cross country, sportshall, track and field, multi-events, Astley Trail series, Daffodil Doddle, etc.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
We will close for (these are subject to change and will be confirmed a month ahead nearer the time):
