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.

  • "Bees was worthwhile to me, it allowed me to realise what my event was and I got to try other events , which I had never done before. It also helped me to join Blackheath and Bromley athletics club, which then helped me in future competitions."

    + Rachel Dickens, Athlete
  • "Also I wanted to say thanks very much to the coaching team for the cross-country. Angus has really enjoyed it this term and was rewarded by being amongst the medal winners at the Bromley Primary schools event yesterday. (He also won another cross-country tournament earlier in the week at Alleyn's schools in Dulwich.)"
