BAC’s highly popular Mini Bees athletics sessions return for the summer, offering fun in a safe environment for six to eight year olds.
Starting on 12th July, the sessions will take place every Wednesday for 12 weeks until 27 September, from 5.30pm-6.30pm. All sessions, helmed by our brilliant coaches, will start with simple athletic drills and finish with an all-important warm down.
Week one is dedicated to short sprints, encouraging youngsters to channel their inner Usain Bolt or Dina Asher-Smith. Week two introduces the long jump, and aspiring Greg Rutherfords will be launching themselves as far as they can into the sand pit at Sandy Track.
Mo Farah fans will enjoy week three, which is dedicated to building a little endurance. No fears of Mo’s distances of 5,000m through to the marathon though – the most anyone runs in one go in 400m, one lap of the track.
Next up, in week four, comes the high jump, with safe soft landings for all. Week five introduces small hurdles, while week six is all about kiddy power as the youngsters chance their arm at throwing the soft shot and discus. Weeks one to six are then repeated for the second run of six weeks, enabling those taking the whole programme to see how far they’ve progressed.
Mini Bees costs £25 for the full 12-week programme, or £2.50 per session.
Please note: Because the ages of those taking part, parents or guardians will be required to be in attendance for the full hour of each session.
