Junior Development Pathway

Chorley Athletic and Triathlon club have adopted the UKA development pathway for its juniors. Training sessions have been devised to ensure junior athletes are offered as many athletic activities as possible i.e. running, jumping, throwing, cycling and swimming.

The development pathway can be viewed here.

Waiting Lists

Due to popular demand, some of our junior training sessions are currently full. If you would like to go on the waiting list please email details (name, age, email) to juniors@chorley-athletic-and-triathlon.org. We have recently expaned our capability and capacity, so the waiting lists are much shorter than it has been for the last few years.

Juniors wishing to join the club must make contact with a coach or the waiting list manager before coming to any sessions.

Club Operational Guidelines

  • All athletes must be registered for each session that they attend.
  • All athletes must be collected from the training venue at the end of each training session. This is important so that we can avoid any safeguarding incidents.
  • If your child cannot attend any session you must report their non-attendance via this email address juniors@chorley-athletic-and-triathlon.org The register administrators will monitor all absences through this address.
  • As there is now a waiting list, we have introduced the rule as follows: If you do not attend for 4 weeks without notifying the club then your place will be offered to the next child on the waiting list.
  • All athletes are encouraged to compete in at least 1 club event each year. A full and varied list of events are available through the web site or attached to each newsletter. A separate email will be sent regarding events
  • All athletes should attend training session in club kit (i.e. t-shirt); this is subject to the availability of kit. These can be purchased several times during the year.
  • Any parents staying in the vicinity of the coached sessions must adhere to any coach instructions and cannot use any equipment capable of taking photographs.
  • Athletes should notify the coach of any injury immediately so that adjustments or plan B can be implemented. This may be that you attend another Team session or even sit it out. It is not worth making it worse.
