Frome Junior Athletic Club presentation evening

FROME Junior Athletic Club has been up and running now for over a year and on Friday 13th December the club had their first ever presentation evening and Christmas party.

Kate Wareham of the club reported, “We were launched by Georgie Starkie who got a group of people together who were very enthusiastic to get children in the Frome area involved in athletics.

“We have junior athletic leaders and assistant coaches and we have two coaches who run the session on a Tuesday night at Frome Leisure centre.

“Frome Junior Athletic Club follows the UKA 365 programme. Athletics 365 is a multi-event, young people development programme, which introduces athletes to the fundamental skills of athletics (vital to every sport). Athletics 365 focuses not only on how fast someone runs or how far someone jumps or throws but also, more importantly, on developing the technical skills (‘how’ to run, jump and throw) required to perform at full potential and move like a champion.

“At the presentation evening it was great to see all the children pick up their UKA 365 Certificates. Other cups were also presented.”
