CLUB TRAINING, MEMBERSHIP & COMPETITIONS INFORMATION
Club Weekly Training & Fees
Weekly Training / Ymarfer Wythnosol
Club training evenings are on Tuesdays and Thursdays weekly at Carmarthen Leisure Centre.
On Tuesdays, sprinters, throwers and younger junior athletes training (U11 & U13) takes place between 18:00 and 19:00 all year.
U15 and older sprints and middle distance group training take place at the later time of 18:30 - 20:00
Tuesdays From April 2020 onwards (Summer Term):
Athletes should arrive at the main athletics gates for the start of session between 17:50 - 18:00. They warm up together from 18:00 and are then given the opportunity to split up into groups to recieve coaching in different events - run, jump and throw. This may vary from one week to another depending on number and coaches availability.
The 18:30 - 20:00 endurance running and older sprints groups will continue to meet at the usual times unless other arrangements have been made by the coaches who run these sessions.
Thursday Evening Training:
Thursday night training are for invited athletes only in sprints and middle distance. These tend to be a bit more intense, where the more experienced athletes are going through their paces.
We welcome all athletes of different abilities and backgrounds - we have a huge young membership, but sadly you can not compete OR train for/with the club until you are 9 yrs old. (AAW Rules)
If you are interested in joining the Harriers over the summer, Please contact the membership secretary Cressy Morgan (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly for details before coming down to the track.
With the weather getting better, numbers training rise throughout the summer. The club has to ensure that the athlete to coach ratio is safe which means that there may be a need again this year to start a "WAITING LIST" for new younger members.
The emphasis is on participation and enjoyment. We do not provide training for those who wish to get fit for other sports.
As from 1 March 2020
£3 on Tuesday evenings
£3 on Thursday evenings
£5 for non-club members

CARMARTHEN HARRIERS TRACK REFURBISHMENT (February - Further Notice)

Many of you now will be aware that work has got underway by the County Council resurfacing and improving elements of the Carmarthen Leisure Centre Athletics Track in Johnstown (home of Carmarthen & District Harriers Athletics Club).
This means there are going to be different arrangements made to weekly training sessions on a Tuesday, Thursday and weekend for the next three-four months.
The track fully closed and works started by contractors from Wednesday 5th February 2020.
This is an exciting time for the club, county and West Wales, and we would like to thank parents, athletes and the public for their co-operation during the weeks & months ahead when the track will be out of action.
The Leisure Centre car park in Johnstown SA31 3NQ is busy daily as a result of part of the facility being out of action near to the main building, in particular between 3:00pm and 8:00pm when several clubs train and regular users visit the swimming pool and gym; please bear in mind and to arrive in plenty of time (there is overflow car parking at QE High School)
