Seniors & Intermediates

Intermediates

Teesdale Athletic Club intermediates section range from the age of eleven to fifteen years of age. They usually progress from the junior section of the club but we do accept anyone in that age group who would like to become a member. We meet at the leisure centre in Barnard Castle on Tuesday and Thursday at 6.00pm and the session usually runs until 7.00pm. This group is led by a highly qualified coach and the training schedule is tailored to suit the athlete’s ability, with each session starting with a warm up and then a stretching routine.

Teesdale Athletic Club are affiliated to the North Yorkshire & South Durham League which holds Cross Country meetings that take place in the winter months and also track and field meetings in the summer months. This group of young athletes are encouraged to compete in some of the races. We have had athletes start with Teesdale Athletic club and have gone on to represent Great Britain at senior level. If you would like to come and talk to one of the coaches or a committee member we would love to see you. Why not come along to one of the training nights and see if it is what you are looking for. You do not have to join the club right away as we give everyone a few weeks to decide if it is for them.
