Sheen Shufflers Junior Athletics is a thriving athletics club for young athletes aged 7-15. The club aims to encourage individuals to gain a great all round athletics experience through participation, encouragement and fun. By learning the fundamentals of athletics (running, throwing and jumping) Sheen Shufflers Juniors also develop an understanding and appreciation of competitive athletics; useful for progressing children to competing for their schools or boroughs.
Sheen Shufflers Juniors meet every Sunday mornings at 09:00 at Barn Elms sports centre from March to October on the Barn Elms athletic track. The sessions are inclusive and open to new participants at any time and are run by a team of qualified coaches.
Whilst the main focus of the Shufflers Juniors are the Sunday morning track and field sessions, the club also participates in local junior athletic events such as parkrun, Team Richmond Cross Country, Junior Summer League and our own Sports Day and orienteering events. As the Juniors section was borne out of Sheen Shufflers running club there are also lots of opportunities to attend and participate in their events, and the hope is that children progress from the Juniors through to the Sheen Shufflers adult section.
The Epsom Downs Cross Country fixture on 1st November 2020 has been CANCELLED. I will post more information about the other fixtures when I receive them. Stay safe, Steve

Please turn up at the track for athletics ONLY if you have already participated in a session since we restarted last month – or have spoken to us first and we have given the go-ahead.
We are doing our best to accommodate the children we have without breaking any of the restrictions imposed on us.
We are aware that there is already a waiting list for athletics. Please be patient and hopefully we will return to some normality soon.
I just need to get the numbers right for this Sunday morning’s junior athletics. So please could you respond accordingly.
1. If you were present last Sunday and intend on being there again this Sunday – no need to respond, just turn up. If you were there last Sunday and can’t make it this week, please let me know so we can use that slot.
2. If you are intending to be there for the first time, but have attended before, please let us know as you will be given priority. Please do not turn up without informing us first – we will respond to you.
3. There is a waiting list of children who haven’t attended before who I will have to let know if they have a slot for Sunday.
I will need to know attendees by mid-morning Saturday so I can let those on the ‘waiting list’ know.
I know this is all very frustrating, but we have to abide by the restrictions currently in place. Your co-operation would be appreciated.
