Over the summer holidays, Starting Blocs (powered by Welsh Athletics) will be working with local partners to deliver athletics camps and sessions to children aged 4-12 across Wales during the summer holidays. The sessions 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, children will have a great experience learning new skills to support them in athletics and other sports.

About Starting Blocs

Starting Blocs is a fun, exciting program to introduce children to the sport of athletics.

Children will learn the key movement skills needed for a life in sport, in a safe and positive environment, through games that are designed to teach children the foundations of running, jumping, and throwing.
