Athletics

A week of all that athletics has to offer.

The fantastic facilities available at St George’s will ensure your child will be jumping, throwing, hurdling, sprinting; perfecting technique and competing against fellow athletes.

Our experienced coaches will take your child through a variety of specialist events and help build skills in each. What could be better than to be outside all week, running and jumping, learning new techniques and perfecting old ones?

Specialist athletic coaches will coach for 3 hours per day, with the remainder of the time incorporated into the All Sports camp.

The price is inclusive of the All Sports summer camp.

All equipment is provided but you are welcome to bring your own specialist equipment if you prefer.

Wear clothing suitable for the season and a full active day eg shorts and tracksuit bottoms, trainers, fleece and a waterproof. We like to get outside as much as possible.

Due to allergies Excel does not provide food. Bring snacks and a packed lunch full of nutritous food fit for a full, active day. Sweets are not a good source of energy! St George's often provide a snack at the end of the day but this will be given after sign out, to allow you to decide if it is suitable.

Bring a refillable water bottle. Water is available at the water fountains for refills.

If you need to bring medicine you will be asked to fill out a form at the start of the week and this will be kept stored for you in case it is required. This can be stored in a fridge if required.

Please do not bring ipads, tablets or telephones. If you do need a telephone, you will be asked to hand it in at the start of the day. This is to protect the taking of images of children.
