Training is organised in line with the young athlete’s stage of fitness and physical maturity. All youngsters develop at different rates and training groups are organised to be made up of athletes of similar ability.
Wherever appropriate we will encourage athletes to compete in age appropriate competitions. These could be on road, cross country, trail and track.
The ultimate expression of athletics training is to compete but we recognise that for some youngsters simply feeling fit and healthy is just as important as competition. We strive to cater for both groups.
The club holds reglar trainging runs for junior members, for more details on the time and locations of these runs have a look at the Junior Training Overview
Club Championship and Target Races
All junior members can participate in the annual club championship which is based on target races throughout the Cross Country season. Our club championship is based on results from the targeted noted races – latest race details will be provided at the start of the winter session. To be in with a chance of a club championship award, children will need to compete therefore regular training, a willingness to compete and a positive attitude will be required to make the team selection.
General communication letters will be sent home with our young athletes and will inform you of upcoming events, annual subscription details, kit details and the like. All details provided to the club will be managed as per the GDPR (data protection) regulations, only your child’s coach and our Welfare officer will have full access to this information.
To aid communication we have a closed Facebook page for all parents to join. This is updated regularly with training schedules, race details and general info we need to get out to you.
Once your child has joined the club, parents are asked to search for the Cambuslang Harriers Junior Group within Facebook and request to join. All coaches have admin rights and should be able to admit you to the group. As this is a closed group for child protection requirements, please don’t send invites to others to join.
