Who are the schemes for?

Track & Field Scheme

The Scheme is for children in school years 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8.

Any younger children should attend the Mini Bees session run on a Saturday morning or the Mini Trackstars sessions run by Norman Park Track Management on Wednesdays afternoons between Easter and October at 4.15 until 5.30pm. Older children should consider joining Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC and participating in the normal club coaching scheme.

Our belief is that children should ideally gain a broad athletic experience in these early years before progressing into more specific training. All children will benefit from some time in the Bees Academy before moving on. Under no circumstances will younger children be able to participate in Track & Field Scheme. It is recognised by many leading authorities in the long-term development of athletes that a broad-base at a young age is far more beneficial than specialising at that young age. The drop out of early-specialisation athletes is quite high, although traditionally this how most clubs handle things. But we want things to change! We will now push that year 7 & 8 athletes are encouraged to take the Academy route rather than any other. As part of the U13 athletes development in the Academy, we will be looking to identify those who might benefit from some exposure to specialist sessions in addition to the multi-event approach we take in the Bees.

Children will be grouped into the Under 13+ age-group (years 6, 7 & 8) or the Under 11 age-group (years 3, 4 & 5). In this way sessions will normally only have children covering a two year span. Normal club track and field activity starts as from the Under 13+ age-group, so children will be participating in the age-group they could find themselves competing in during the track and field season.

Being a Bees Academy U13+ athlete will not preclude attending with a specialist group as well if that were desirable, however the really important thing is that the athletes that we hope will progress through to the main club teams, will have a well-rounded and broad athletic base upon which to develop their true potential. The U11 athletes will have the added benefit of not being inadvertently put under pressure when participating with much older children, and the fun will remain.

Endurance Scheme

This Scheme is for children in school years 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8, although older children can attend if they so wish. Children younger than school year 3 should attend the Mini Bees session running on a Saturday morning at the same time as the Endurance session.

Despite a relatively high level of focus on endurance running skills, we ensure the athletes are introduced to other events to improve their all-round athleticsm.

In the same way as Under 13+ children in the Track & Field Scheme will be able to compete, the same can be said for the children on the Endurance Scheme. Attending specialist group training sessions may be of benefit to some of the young athletes in this Scheme.

Mini Bees Scheme

This Scheme is very clearly focussed on children in School Years Reception to 2 inclusive. We are unable to enroll children who have not yet started school in Reception or above .

Random Testimonials


  • "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
  • "As a parent the benefit gained from the Bees Academy can be summarised in the words of my child, "It's fun because there are lots of different events to do from the hammer to obstacle relays, it's healthy, it's a chance to make new friends and grow bigger muscles"

    +   In my view the Bees Academy is an excellent opportunity for my child to participate in a wide range of athletic events within a safe and professionally organised sporting environment. I can see real changes in her agility, speed, strength and confidence. I am sure these changes will help set a firm foundation for a healthy lifestyle in later life." David Bruney, Parent
