Train with us
The field squad of King’s Athletics is a new, yet fast developing group. Last year was a first year as a proper squad and we got some astonishing improvements and results. We are a group of motivated people with a range of different skills, going from first-timers to finalists in the British Universities and Colleges Nationals. We are able to cater for all levels and all passions.
We train twice a week at the great Southwark Track in Southwark Park. It’s a 10min walk from Canada Water station on the Jubilee line, which makes it really easily accessible. Our training Schedule is as follows
The club is active for more than two days a week don’t worry!
Shaun has been active in athletics for as long as I’ve been alive! With around 10 years of experience as a coach he has a breadth of knowledge to get all athletes to their top performance level. By questioning you to analyse your throw and adding quality advice, his coaching style never fails!
Byron is our jumps coach. He brings energy and passion to every single session, which makes you commit 100% into all the drills, and jumps that you do.
Our year is split between the indoor and outdoor season.
In our indoor season we take part in the London Universities and Colleges Athletics (LUCA) competition. This is on the DATE. All London universities come and compete for a day. This has been happening for some years now and it is always a great day to break all our personal bests competing against some of the best athletes in London. Yet also perfect for new comers who want to experience competition for the first time, as you will not be alone in that situation.
Our outdoor season begins as early as March with the first of the Outdoors Luca Series. Here there are three competitions set out, and points are allocated each meet to get a final winner of the overall series
These are our set dates for the year. However as the year goes through you will also have the opportunity to join some open competitions. The dates of these are not set yet, but this year people were able to take part in a competition about once a month.
