Welcome to the Juniors Section of the LBAC website
... where we pride ourselves in being a small but friendly club for children 9 years of age and over (as of 1st January).
Summer training has started and we are back at Vandyke School on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:45pm. Don't forget your water for those hot summer evenings!
New Starters Trial Evenings June 4th and 6th, July 2nd and 4th and September 10th and 12th at Vandyke School from 6:45, Please let us know if you are coming.
Children will be offered an initial 2 week trial period, after which they will be expected to join the Club as there are insurance implications with non-members training.

We compete in the East Anglian Track and Field league, this usually consists of four league meetings plus a final. There are some events for the Under 11’s but most cater for Under 13 upwards. We also take part in the Chiltern Cross Country league, when the more enthusiastic love getting wet and muddy!! and the Sportshall Athletics events which are a great fun introduction to competing for the kids. The Club also selects athletes to enter the County Championships, Eastern County Championships and AAA Championships.
