Summer Aviva UKA Academy Startrack Scheme

The week of the opening of the London Olympics, Tipton Harriers are holding their summer  UK Athletics Startrack scheme in which young athletes age 8 to 15 can try athletics events that they can watch in the Olympics a few days later, running - sprints, endurance, jumping, throwing, hurdling, and relays. They will learn athletics skills in an enjoyable and safe environment.

The Startrack scheme is the UK Athletics flagship grassroots programme that takes place at Tipton Sports Academy, Wednesbury Oak Road, Tipton, from Monday, 23rd to Thursday, 26th July, from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm. Young athletes age 8 to 15 register in the reception area from 9.30, and the cost is £4 each morning or £14 for the 4 day course.

Those completing the scheme will be rewarded with a goodie bag and  T shirt together with a certificate. Tipton's UK Athletics qualified coaches, with CRB, coach the participants, who experience a rotation of events each day. Tipton Harriers are now in the 13th year of organising the successful scheme with over a thousand young athletes taking part. Come and try it!
