The motto of the national Sportshall programme is 'fun to fulfilment' and this is the aim of City of Norwich AC. We encourage youngsters from the age of 8 to 14 to have a go at the wide range of events that make up the Sportshall programme.
The reversaboards make for exciting racing, whilst the long and triple jumps mats aid technique development. Other events such as the speed bounce, vertical jump, soft javelins and steppers combine to make the programme very varied. All in all Sportshall athletics is an excellent introduction to nearly all outdoor athletic events - in a fun, competitive environment.
For the 2012-13 season our Sportshall training sessions take place on Saturday mornings at the superb indoor facilities at Taverham High School (this session is now fully subscribed - please email us if you would like to be added to our waiting list) and City Academy Norwich. We offer local youngsters the opportunity to train with our own athletes on a regular basis to develop their athletic skills.
Saturday mornings at both sites are split into two sessions lasting 75 minutes each: 9.30am-10.45am for ages 8 to 11 and 10.45am-12 noon for ages 12 to 14. Registration for the earlier sessions start at 9.15am.
Dates for the 2012-13 training sessions are:
We welcome newcomers to turn up on the day to see if they like Sportshall, but each child must be registered before they will be allowed entry. The price per session on the door is £1.50 for CoNAC members and £2.50 for non-members. Appropriate sports footwear and suitable clothing must be worn.
While under no obligation to do so, if you are a non-CoNAC member and you enjoy these sessions then the logical next step is to join CoNAC - this will give you a £1 reduction on the cost of your Saturday sessions and also extensive opportunities to represent the club in the Norfolk Sportshall Athletics League and at many other exciting and fun events. Full details are available on request at the Saturday sessions.
CoNAC is a member of the Norfolk Sportshall Athletics League which is the body responsible for organising the county league competitions as well as selecting U11, U13 and U15 squads to represent the Norfolk at regional and national events (where age limits and NSAL selection criteria apply). You must be a member of CoNAC to compete in League matches and CoNAC membership from 29th September to the end of March 2012 costs just £15. Full details are available on request at the Saturday sessions.
Here are the important competition dates and venues for the 2012-13 Sportshall season:
