This year we are running both an Athletics Holiday Camp for 4-12yrs and an Athletics Sprint Camp for 7-11yrs and 12-16yrs - for full details and to book online visit our Junior or Senior training pages.
Our aim is to get children involved and enjoying participating in physical activity regardless of their ability or background. Our sessions develop key fundamental movements that not only improve sporting ability but everyday life tasks. By enrolling your child in our sessions we can help your child develop into a more healthy, sporting and confident person through Fitness & Athletics!
Fundamental Fitness and Athletic development centres are based in and around the Reading area and have strong links to both Reading Athletcs Club and Bracknell Athletics Club. They have been created to get more children involved in sports and to help improve their health and physical ability. Whilst our fitness and athletics training sessions are designed to help your child develop their sporting standard, the main aim of the sessions is to get as many children as possible to have fun, gain self-confidence and enjoy being involved in exercise. There is strong evidence that physical activity has numerous health benefits for children, both physically and mentally.
Fundamental Fitness & Athletics classes are structured and co-ordinated by Charlotte Webb, a Level 2 qualified UKA coach, who works closely with Reading Athletics Club. You can read more about Charlotte here. Our group training costs just £6 per session and all sessions will be taught by qualified UKA coaches who are DBS cleared. We also provide 1-1 training at £25 per hour session or £15 for 30 mins.
Athletics as a sport is first and foremost based on 6 key fundamental movements, these in turn enable you to run, jump and throw effectively. These same 6 basic fundamentals are vital to every single sport and everyday life movements.
If you are completely new to sport this is a great way to help develop a strong base that will allow you to feel much more physically fit and confident in yourself, and in your performance as time goes on.
Whether you are a football player looking for more speed, a rugby player looking for more power or a netball player trying to develop your agility our sessions will help you improve yourself and your game.
Many children will be fast, strong or have great endurance whilst still lacking one or more of these key skills - imagine how much faster, stronger or further they could run if they where to develop all their fundamentals.
Although most sessions are held within a group, 1 to 1 coaching is available tailored individuals needs and offering direct and immediate feedback. This will allow students to progress faster.
Charlotte is a dedicated coach, my son has been with her for years and now has my youngest with her, fantastic with kids and such a passion for athletics. Highly recommend.
