Training at Nidd Valley Juniors
Due to the COVID pandemic many restrictions are in place. There are no current events scheduled for Junior Race Series. This page will be updated when the Junior Race Series restarts.
Throughout the year we attend races and events as a club, which will be available for the competitive member or just for the fun side of training. We look at performance, improvement and dedication of our junior members overall. At the end of the series we present participation medals, awards and trophies for our members.
Training sessions are held on a Monday Evening in term time only from 6pm until 8pm at King James’s School, Knaresborough, HG5 8EB.

Over 12s Training
The older group’s training differs from the younger, we trail away from sports hall athletics to different training techniques. Primarily conducting running, we split the group into two abilities doing the same training just at their own comfortable thresholds.
Over 12’s sessions start off with a warm-up of the key muscle groups followed by a 30-minute intense training session. Then finally a cool down and discussion about goals and races which are coming up at the weekend.
Under 12s Training
With the Under 12s, we follow the Athletics 365 and Sportshall athletics programs to give them a wide experience of Athletics. By doing this they are able to try all disciplines of the sport.
Half of the session will be conducted doing, Fartlek, Intervals, Endurance, Trail or Fell training. These are conducted within the grounds of the school. The second half will be sports hall athletics based where they can aim to achieve the Steps on the Ladders of success.
