Barking and Dagenham Athletics 365 Academy
The 365 academy is a multi-event young people development programme which introduces athletes to the fundamental skills of athletics. It is for ages 6 to 16 and takes place at the Jim Peters Stadium.
The 365 Academy focuses not only on how fast someone runs or how far they jump and throw but, more importantly, on developing the technical skills required to perform at full potential and move like a champion.
The Programme runs in ten week blocks and is set out over nine levels. Participants will be placed in one of three groups depending on ability:
Practising: levels red to green – beginners group
Developing: levels purple to black – intermediate group
Emerging: levels bronze to gold – Advanced group
The level can be gained by completing all challenges within a certain level – all challenges are covered in the ten week block.
It is advisable the child attends both sessions within the week to give them the best chance to cover all aspects of the programme. It is possible for a child to come to one of the two days and still cover the challenges but their development would come at a slower rate to children that attending both days.
Each session will cost £2.20 for a child to attend. You can enjoy a discount by booking a 10 week block for £38 saving £6 (if you were to pay per session).
Barking and Dagenham Academy takes place on the following nights:
Mondays: 5:30pm to 7pm (registration – 5:20pm to 5:30pm)
Thursday: 5:30pm to 7pm (registration – 5:20pm to 5:30pm)
