Juniors Training

EVH Juniors Sportshall 2105










As you know all junior club training has been suspended during the latest lockdown,

We will hopefully be returning to Ivybridge Community College at some point in the future but we do not when.
We will be using the outdoor sprint track (and also the roads for the endurance group) from 6-7pm for now.
Unfortunately we cannot offer any direct coaching at the moment but we are posting an online weekly programme on the Junior News page.
There is also useful information on our online training page here >>>

The England Athletics and Running at home page here >>> has access to a host of useful tips and videos including the Athletics 365 curriculum which is an excellent resource for all young athletes.

We have decided not to charge training fees again this term and for those who have already paid we will credit everyone with a free term.

We hope things will return to normal in early April.
