What if I am interested in getting more serious about athletics? You can move to one of the Club’s development groups (sprints/endurance/throws/ jumps). You can always move back if that’s not for you.
Not everyone wants to be an elite!
DSD's Fit4Youth is an athletics programme for teenagers who may not necessarily be interested in competitive athletics…
How do I qualify to join? Be a teenager interested in getting fit and meeting other teenagers.
How do I join? Come and watch a training session and if you like what you see, register with the Club online.
Do I need to be fit? No. But you will get fitter!
Do I need to be any good? No. But there are lots of good athletes in the group. Also ones who are not so good :-)
How does it work? Join the group for one hour training session twice a week
