IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING REGISTRATION
For obvious safety & safeguarding reasons, could parents please ensure that their children register in the pavilion when they arrive at junior training. It is essential that we have an accurate record of who is present at training. Please also try and ensure that your child arrives well before the start of the session at 5.40pm. After this time, with the lighter evenings, your child’s group may have left Eshtons. If you are unavoidably late, there may be nobody on the reception desk, so please tick your child’s name on the register yourself and make sure your child’s coach is aware that your child has arrived.
Many thanks for your co-operation with these important safety issues.
KENDAL WINTER LEAGUE & JUNIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS
General Information about Settle Harriers Juniors
Settle Harriers aim to provide opportunities for young runners in the area to learn about and participate in training and racing in the disciplines of cross-country and fell running. The Club is located in the centre of the finest natural scenery and training country to be found anywhere. Regular training and racing events are organised all year round open to all junior club members.
Junior training takes place on Tuesdays (term-time only) from 5.30pm – 6.45pm and our base is Eshtons Pavilion, Raines Road, Giggleswick, next to Giggleswick School’s all weather pitch. During the winter months, sessions are held either on the all weather pitch (younger athletes) or on the fields close by. Older juniors may venture a bit further afield.
Our coaches are all qualified to at least UK Athletics Level 2 and we also have a large number of assistant coaches qualified to Level 1. All these are also DBS checked. Parents are welcome to help out at training sessions – we are always looking for volunteers.
We do require that potential new members register with us first as we operate a waiting list system due to the popularity of these training sessions. To register your interest look at the information under the MEMBERSHIP menu. Our annual junior subscription is £10 and we also charge termly session fees which equate to £1 per session but payable at the start of each term.
Our juniors have their own junior club championship – a series of races that run from January until October. They also compete in local leagues such as the Kendal Winter League (Jan – March) and West Yorkshire Cross-Country League (Oct – Dec). See the RACES menu on this website for more information.
