Keighley & Craven AC welcomes all Junior athletes to our club. Our coaches are qualified in run, jump and throw and we encourage all juniors to take part in all these activities. We train and compete in terms of running on the track, the road, fell and cross country. We have specialised coaches for field events.

We have different levels and capability for all our junior groups and all abilities are welcome, from children who are new to athletics to experienced junior athletes. Our club takes children from the age of 8 years old.

Training takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings as below;

Training at UAK, Greenhead Lane, Keighley and the cost is £2 per session

Tuesday 6.30 – 7.30
Thursday 6.30 – 7.30

We encourage all our athletes to enjoy the training sessions and, if they choose, to go on and compete for the club in a number of different athletic events.

Please note that some of our junior groups have a waiting list although places frequently become available. Please get in touch by emailing in the first instance to confirm whether spaces are available and to understand the expectations that we have of our juniors. Our Juniors compete at local, regional and in some cases national level. There is an expectation that all Juniors whatever their ability represent the club on occasion in local races. For events such as Northern and National Road Relays, we sometimes put on  heavily subsidised coach travel so that we can have a fantastic team spirit whilst representing the club.


Please do not bring children to the club without first making contact to confirm when it is appropriate to come along.
