Starting Blocs Athletics Camps

Over the summer holidays, Starting Blocs (powered by Welsh Athletics) will be working with local athletics clubs to deliver athletics camps to children across Wales. The Starting Blocs athletics camp will cover all the various disciplines of athletics, introducing children to the sport in a fun and engaging way. Delivered by our expert coaches, many of whom coach at their local club, your child will have a great week learning new skills to support them in athletics & other sports.

The last day of the week will be a mini-Olympics day where children will put their new skills into practice and will each take part in a run, jump & throw to score points for their team.

You can view the sessions happening across Wales here, simply search by your child’s age to find an athletics camp near you, or read below for an overview of activity happening across Wales.

Please note times, dates and prices vary across Wales.
