Overton Harriers & AC are keen to encourage both competitive and non-competitive running and athletics for local children. Our training sessions are varied and split between endurance, speed work and field events, so every child has the opportunity to be involved in different areas of athletics. It is a great place to keep fit and try out different things. For our latest news please click here
Coaching sessions are run by CRB/DBS checked, qualified England Athletics coaches as follows:
Years 3 & 4 (Under 9s) and Years 5 – 10 (Under 11s/ Under 13s / Under 15s):
Thursday evenings from 6:15 to 7:15pm and Saturday mornings 9:30 to 10:30am – both at Berrydown Sports field, Overton. You are welcome to attend either or both sessions each week. All abilities are welcome and the sessions are based around the fundamentals of athletics. During the summer we enter the Wessex Track and Field League and in the winter we take part in the Hampshire Sportshall indoor competition and two cross country leagues. Please contact Keith Vallis (firstname.lastname@example.org or 01256 773255) for any queries and to ensure that we have space for new members before you come along.
