Our Groups

At Phoenix Flyers, we've had to adapt our training so that we're training in smaller groups to follow the Covid guidance that has been set by England Athletics.  We're now training in groups which have a maximum of 12 athletes (some groups are smaller) and we're training in different areas to keep groups safe by being apart.  All our training is following social distancing guidance.

Each week, we need to ask parents to fill in our Google form which is posted on the club Facebook page and can be emailed out by request and they then apply for training sessions for their child.  This is so that we can manage the numbers of athletes and offer the best groups to match the coach availability that we have.

Here's an explanation of the groups........................

This group is for athletes from ages 8 to 10 years of old and we aim to develop their general skills on running, jumping and throwing.
