Calling Mini Athletes to the Track

Young sports enthusiasts can get fit and have fun at South Tyneside's Mini Athletics Club.

The sessions, held at Monkton Stadium in Jarrow, support children aged five to seven to learn and develop a range of athletics skills in a safe environment with qualified instructors. They are also a great way for youngsters to improve their balance, co-ordination and agility, get fit and have fun.

Activities include jumping, throwing and running with many game based activities. Children will also have the opportunity to work towards recognised UK Athletics Awards.

Mini Athletics Club takes place on:

  • Mondays, 5pm to 6pm;
  • Wednesdays, 4.30pm to 5.30pm;
  • Thursdays, 4.15pm to 5.15pm;
  • Friday 5pm to 6pm.

Monkton Stadium is a major athletics venue, which hosts regional and national events. It covers all disciplines of athletics, with features including a full size eight lane running track and facilities for field events.

Those attending can pay per session costing £3.50 each or block book and receive sessions at a discounted price.
