Wallsend Harriers is proud to have one of the most thriving Junior sections in the North East.

Our junior section covers from the age of 6 through to 16. At present we have more than 60 registered junior members.

At Wallsend our young athletes embark upon Athletics 365 – the England Athletics Club-Based Youth Development Programme – which introduces athletes to the fundamental skills of athletics (vital to every sport). Athletics 365 focuses not only on how fast someone runs or how far someone jumps or throws, but also, more importantly, on developing the technical skills (‘how’ to run, jump and throw) required to perform at full potential and move like a champion.

In addition to technical skills, Athletics 365 also looks at an athlete’s physical, mental and emotional development, as well as their lifestyle and social development.

Through Athletics 365, Wallsend Harriers, EA and UKA believe young people will develop the confidence and skills to excel in life; not only in athletics but in other sports and pursuits.
