The Bees Academy is a coaching initiative designed specifically for children in school years 1 up to and including year 8 to encourage their participation in sport and to develop their athletic potential to the best of their ability. Coaching sessions are held each Monday and Wednesday from 5.00pm to 6.00pm and also Saturday mornings from 9.00am to 10.00am at Norman Park Athletics Track.
We have three schemes running in the Bees Academy, namely:
On Track - Track & Field. This scheme for school year 3 and above covers running, jumping and throwing in various forms and through different approaches.
- Off Track - Endurance. This a scheme that caters for school year 3 and above who wish to do endurance-type running, e.g. cross country.
- Mini Bees. This is a scheme introduced to cater for young children in school years 1 and 2.
Lead coaches involved in the scheme are licensed by UK Athletics at varying levels and covering various disciplines.
The Bees Academy acts as a feeder to the very successful Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC, although youngsters are free to join other clubs of their choice.
