Sportshall training takes place on Tuesday evening from September until Easter at Kings School Sports Hall between 6.30-8.00 pm. 

The training covers:

  • Running (1 Lap - 6 Lap races)
  • Throwing (Chest Push : Soft Javelin : Shot)
  • Jumps (Standing Long & Triple Jumps, Vertical Jump)
  • Agility skills (Speed Bounce : Hi Stepper) 

A big advantage of Sportshall training is that it is held indoors during the colder winter months. The club takes part in the Hampshire Sportshall League which has 4 matches throughout the season, the club enters teams in the Under 11 and Under 13 age groups and Under 15 athletes compete as Individuals. 

Given the restrictions in the number of athletes who can take part in sportshall, we expect the athletes to compete for the club in the sportshall competitions. 

After Easter, the athletes who compete for the club in Sportshall will be given an opportunity to join other WADAC training groups in the spring and summer such as Quadkids, Endurance, Sprints, Jumps, and the Development Group in priority to other athletes on the waiting lists.  The athletes will then rejoin the sportshall group in the Autumn and Winter.  

Those Athletes who impress at the League matches are selected to compete for the Hampshire Sportshall Team at the Regional matches which take place in Burgess Hill Sussex.
