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.
