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

  • "As a parent of a 'Bee', I was really impressed with the quality of coaching, care and efficiency of the Academy. The communication was excellent and, despite the numbers, each child was well known, encouraged and their individual talents were developed. The level of expertise didn't matter – brilliant coaching by totally dedicated people made it a huge amount of fun, such that we could never miss a session, regardless of the weather!

    +   Going to 'Bees' was much more than just a weekly workout – it taught teamwork, respect for each other, celebration of the success of others and the best general grounding required to progress in a club situation. This was all achieved with a child-friendly approach and genuine interest in each one. Without this, my daughter would never have had the confidence to join an athletics club or become so committed to sport." Sarah Fletcher, Parent
  • "Just to say thank you for running a great cross country club Natasha absolutely loves coming on a Saturday morning, it has really improved her stamina and all round levels of fitness! Thanks once again."
