FAQS

How can my child do both the Saturday On Track and the Off Track sessions?
 

Assuming you cannot enroll your child onto either the Monday or Wednesday sessions, our suggestion is that your child does the first half-term doing the Off Track scheme and then switches to the On Track scheme for the second half-term. Of course you can do a mix 'n match between the schemes!

What constitutes an Under 11 or Under 13?
 

For Track & Field, it is fairly simple - an Under 13 is in school year 6 or 7, Under 11 is anything younger.

For Cross Country, an Under 13 is someone in school years 7 or 8 (and some year 6), being 11 on the day of competition or being 12 on the previous 31st August. An Under 11 is anything younger.

When can my child join Blackheath & Bromley Harriers proper?
  There is nothing to stop anyone joining the club at any time. However it really only makes sense when the child is old enough to join in with the mainstream activities of the club in terms of track and field, and/or cross-country, and/or road-running.

Normally no child can be on the track on a Tuesday or Thursday unless they are 11 years of age minimum. If it is September through to March, a child can come onto the track provided they will be 11 years of age by the 31st March.

This rule clearly only applies to year 6 children. However we suggest that for year 6 and below, the child should remain in the Bees Academy.

Year 7 children are better served by staying in the Bees until the end of the Summer term and then joining the club proper.

For year 8 and above the child should consider joining the club and training in one of the many training groups available.
If I miss a session can I get a refund?
  Unfortunately no. Whether your child is present or not we still incur the same costs.
Doesn't it get too dark in the winter?
  There are floodlights all around the athletics track that light up the facility as if it is a summer evening. The car park is also lit up.

During the winter months, the track is opened at 6.00pm so if you arrive whilst the track is in darkness, please hang on until the lights are switched on.
As a parent or carer do I need to stay during the session?
 

You do not need to stay. However if you are a parent of a Mini Bee we do recommend that you stay for the duration.

If you do not stay please ensure you are back to collect your child by the time the sessions ends. Also please ensure you come back into the athletics centre fenced area to collect your child at the end, we will not allow any unaccompanied child out into the car park even if they can see you!

  • "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
  • "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."
