Information For Parents

The Junior Section of Calder Valley Fell Runners Club has been established to provide local young people of all backgrounds and levels of achievement with a happy and rewarding sporting experience in a caring, safe environment. It is hoped that this will enable each young person to realise their potential and encourage them to develop the knowledge, skills and motivation to pursue a successful sporting career and lead a happy, healthy life.

Our coaching style is informed by three simple principles:

  • Children come first – winning comes second.
  • Sport should be fun.
  • Remember to reward effort as well as achievement.

It is intended that the junior section be open to everyone between the ages of 6 and 18; from those who wish to seek to keep fit and have fun to those who wish to compete at the highest level. In this context the Tuesday evening training sessions will be structured to enable all levels of attainment to develop their suppleness, skill, speed, stamina and strength.
