New Forest Junior Athletic Club

The New Forest Junior Athletic Club was founded in 1999 to provide athletics within the New Forest Schools area to children who are interested in and keen to improve their athletic ability. Many children have now represented Hampshire in national competitions.

The club is affiliated to the Hampshire Athletic Association and England Athletics (UKA). The club also acts as the schools/clubs link for both the New Forest Schools Athletic Association and the New Forest School Sport Partnership.

The club is particularly keen to improve facilities in the area as well as provide the highest possible standard of coaching. All our coaches are qualified, concentrating particularly on the development of young athletes.
