The North Dorset Athletics Academy covers running, jumping, and throwing events. Membership is open to anyone from the age of 8 years, with no upper age limit.

The group caters for athletes of all abilities and ambitions, both those who are members of an athletics club and those solely competing within school athletics. The Academy is supported by Wimborne AC.

Those of any age who simply wish to maintain a level of fitness are equally welcome. As the north of the county is geographically wide spread, we run an Athletics Academy in Blandford, Shaftesbury and Gillingham where athletes get the opportunity to compete in Sports:hall athletics and complete the Athletics 365 award scheme. We aim to begin sessions in STurminster Newton on Wednesdays in the Autumn term 2013.

MONDAY        Athletics Academy, Riversmeet Leisure Centre, Gillingham  Yr5 +     4 - 5.30pm
