Our Athletic Programmes
We offer before school clubs, lunchtime clubs and after school clubs specifically for 5-12 year olds. Each club focuses on teaching the fundamental techniques of our own programme Run, Jump, Throw.
They develop children’s ABC skills through group play and exercises. Our programmes are designed to be fun for the children, providing broad rounded activities as research shows that too much streaming from an early age can have an adverse effect. All of our clubs place fun and inclusivity at their heart - a lot of the exercises are formed around play and games; the children are learning skills at the same time as practising drills, having fun and getting fit.
“My son loves the Daley Thompson Run, Jump, Throw Club! He has been in club for the last three years and it has really built his ability, enthusiasm and confidence for sport. It is a really nice mix of different athletics activities combined with fun games. He has asked me to sign him up for all future terms!”

Parent Sutton Valence School
My son, Edward, had a great time at the after school club which he attended for the first time yesterday. He was absolutely buzzing when he got home and full of enthusiasm for the coaches and the drills which they gave the children to do. Edward is very competitive and loved the chance to learn how to improve his skills. Edward was full of excitement about the half term coaching course which is due to be held at Sutton Valence School and begged to be signed up for it! This is the first time that he has shown any interest in any type of 'holiday club' so we were more than happy to put his name down for the day. As parents, we have tried for some time to find some athletics training for him, outside of the school day, so the Daley Thompson Athletics Academy seems to be the answer to his quest to learn more about this Sport.
