Benefits of the schemes

The main benefits for the children taking part in the Bees Academy activities include improvements to their:

  • all-round athleticism
  • attention span
  • listening skills
  • motor skills
  • balance
  • flexibility
  • fitness levels
  • confidence
  • coordination
  • respect for others

Because the ratio of coaches to children is kept to a relatively low level, it allows the coaches to focus better on the youngsters and this hopefully will allow the children to develop their skills better. From our perspective this gives us the situation where the athletes get a good grounding of all events which will stand them in good stead later in their sporting career, and ultimately a much better standard of athletes coming into mainstream athletics (or some other sport).

We adopt a structured approach to training in that children will be taken through a programme appropriate to their development. The progress of athletes, in particular the Under 13+ age-group (school years 6, 7 & 8), will be monitored closely.

In addition, Bees Academy membership (pre-paid) entitles you to the following:

  • 10% discount on goods purchased from "Up and Running", Sevenoaks.
  • References provided for new schools and/or scholarships where needed.
  • First year membership fee to join Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC reduced to £10; joining fee waived - note you will have to pay the England Athletics £14 annual levy. This will allow the child to compete for the club whilst still attending the Bees Academy.
  • Fast Track on the day registration.

Random Testimonials

  • "The Bees academy has been welcoming to my daughter and her friends.It's a healthy outdoors activity, that's fun and enjoyable for children. It's opened all of our minds to athletics as a sport."

    +   Mrs Sharon Hurlock (mother to Aine)
  • "I joined the BEES as a cross country runner and was soon enjoying loads of new activities like hammer throwing and long jump as well as hurdling and sprinting. The BEES taught me to try everything and it was great being part of a big group just having fun. After a while I realised that I was a fast runner and could do well at long jump. Once I started to race for B&B it was obvious that all the training I had done at BEES really helped and has laid a good foundation as I moved on to higher level sport."
