One of the highlights of my time in Stamford Striders was when we opened the club up to a Junior section a few years ago. It had always felt wrong to have to reply to interested emails from Juniors that we didn’t have a Junior section and give them details of other nearby clubs that did.
Since we opened up the Junior Striders, for ages 9 and up, we have always been full, governed by Coaching ratios and the capacity of the indoor sports hall at Borderville during winter training.
The whole club has been impressed and proud of the Juniors both in training and in competition, and we try to select competition events that have both a Senior and Junior element, where we can.
Having recently completed the UKA Welfare and Safeguarding course I am glad to be one of the Welfare Officers along with Janine.
