Staffordshire Moorlands AC have vibrant junior section.
I have been junior manager for over seven years now and my ideal is that everyone who wants to run or race regardless of ability gets to run. We have junior members from the age of 6 and welcome anyone regardless of ability or goals.
We have various training sessions which can be found on the training page but for the younger runners the emphasis is on fun with lots of running based games but they also get to have a run on the track as this is what a lot of them enjoy doing as they aspire to be like the icons they have seen on the tv.
Over the years we have had some very successful junior runners with many of them winning individual and team medals at County and Midland level, in fact one of past juniors Matt Clowes is now over in America and has just broken the 4 minute mile, he joined us as a school boy just wanting to improve fitness for his football. A lot of our juniors have ran for English schools and have been selected to run for the county.
Happy Running :)
