Foundation Athletics

Having learnt the skills of balance, agility and co-ordination (ABCs) in fundamental athletics, children use them to perform more challenging tasks in run, jump and throw (RJT).  Fitness tasks are more intense as are the Athletics 365 development program tasks. It is hoped that almost all children will be participating in local competitions.


At NSP, we have 4 coaching groups that sit within foundation athletics:

*Age category 10 to 12 (Tuesday and Thursday)

Lead coaches: Diane Williams – Level 2 Coach & Tom Harley – Coaching Assistant

*Age category 12 to 15 (Tuesday and Thursday)

Lead coach : Michelle Wordsworth – Athletics Coach

*Note that age is not always the key identifier when moving between groups.  Children also move between groups based on other key factors such as chronological, training and development age.

If you are interested in joining, please check the current availability of our groups.
