Juvenile Athletics Events

Juvenile Athletics in Ireland is defined by age groups, from Under 9 through to Under 19.  A child has to be under the defined age for the full calendar year. 

In DSD we believe in training hard and competing hard, while having fun and enjoying ourselves.  This ethos has resulted in many of our former juvenile athletes making firm friendships during their juvenile years which, in many cases, have outlasted their interest in the sport itself.  Many of our senior athletes, including most of our international standard senior athletes, joined our Club as juveniles.

Athletes generally train with athletes of their own approximate age; this is for social reasons as much as training reasons. Training intensity increases with age and fitness, and our coaches are watchful of individual capability and manage the training sessions so that athletes of different abilities are stretched according to their ability.

As athletes get older they will steer more towards their preferred events and training becomes more specialized depending on the preferred discipline.  DSD caters for athletes across all running categories from marathon to sprints as well as hurdles, jumps and throws.
