Athletix Kidz is the UK’s first Athletics specific programme for children between the ages of 2 ½ – 10 years old.
It was the Olympics in London during 2012 that became an important milestone for us as a nation. Creating Olympic and Paralympic legacies inspiring thousands of young children throughout the country. This gave children and their parents the drive to participate in all kinds of sports.
Currently most athletics clubs take children from 8 years old; therefore, we felt it was necessary to offer children under this age the opportunity to exercise through athletics. It was after Rio 2016 my family and I decided to launch an athletics programme for children under the age of 8 which would provide the fundamentals of running, jumping and throwing whilst having lots of fun! Athletix Kidz was born!
Athletix Kidz is a family run business with my myself being a nationally ranked 100m sprinter competing in the indoor and outdoor British championships up against Olympians.
Athletix Kidz is a play base programme providing enthusiastic coaches that deliver sessions involving running, jumping and throwing activities whilst having lots of fun. Athletics forms a large part of any fundamental movement which is a great platform for all sports going forward.
