Training

Training

Training for all events is held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Sportspace Athletics track, located at Jarman Park, between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.  Times vary for different age groups, so please check with the relevant coaches.  Training fees are £3.50 per session or £2.00 for club members.

During the winter months we also use a local gym for circuit training and these sessions have now been moved to Thursday evenings. In 2015-16, these sessions will take place at the old gym at Cavendish School in Hemel Hempstead (postcode HP1 3DW).

1. JUNIOR SQUAD
Junior squad trains from 6.30-7.30 pm.  From October 6th 2015, the Junior Squad will train indoors at Cavendish School old gym (HP1 3DW)  EVERY THURSDAY from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Tuesday training will be at the track as usual.

2. GAVIN TOWN’S SPRINT SQUAD
From October 6th to December 15th only, Gavin’s group will be at Cavendish School old gym on TUESDAYS from 7:00pm to 8:00pm for plyometrics sessions, then will return to the track from December 17th.

From October 6th to March, Gavin’s group will be at Cavendish School old gym on THURSDAYS from 7.30pm to 8.30pm for circuit training.

For those of you who do not want to train indoors during the winter,  Chris Styles is at the track to coach.   The Middle Distance squad trains at the track on both Tuesdays and Thursdays. The adult Road Runners meet at the track clubhouse from 6.30pm for a 7pm start – these sessions usually take place on the road and footpaths (and hills!) nearby, but track sessions are held once a month.

If you are interested in joining our club or just finding out more – come along to Dacorum Athletics Track and join in one of our supervised coaching sessions. For anyone wishing to train on the track with us or try a free ‘taster session’, you must attend an Induction session first. These sessions will introduce you to the club’s health and safety regulations and you will also see the various groups in training and have a chance to speak to the coaches. Please check the homepage for dates of the next Induction or email Petra Carroll, our Induction leader, at petra.carroll@hotmail.co.uk. Alternatively, you can also contact the club via this website (contacts page general inquiries).
