Welcome to New Forest Juniors
New Forest Junior (NFJ) Athletics club is a small, friendly, club catering for all abilities. Our aim is to provide quality coaching and competition to young athletes from school year 4 to year 11, developing athletes to the best of their abilities. We are based at Noadswood School in Dibden Purlieu, in the East of the New Forest, with a small satellite club in the North of the New Forest, based around Hale.
NFJ offer athletes the opportunity of competing in cross-country competitions during the winter months followed by track and field league fixtures during the summer months. We support and develop those athletes wanting to progress to the next level. We also support local schools in their athletic aspirations throughout the school year.
Joining the ClubPlease contact the club's membership secretary Rachel Jones giving your child's name and school year and state if you are interested at training at Noadswood or Hale. You will be sent an Expression Of Interest form so we can establish how we can best support your training needs and if there is a space in the most appropriate training group.
Please do not turn up to a training venue without contacting the membership secretary as above. We look forward to hearing from you
