Here to help your budding athletes become better athletes
Momentum Sports is very pleased to be working with Kingston AC and Polytechnic Harriers (K&P) to help bring on the next generation of athletes in the south-west area of London through the Kestrel Club.
We are starting to look forwards to the summer athletics season now (although there are still a few cross-country races available.
We are keen to get athletes involved in competing where we can - by joining our parent athletics club (Kingston and Poly) and benefiting all there is to offer through the club.
This includes several leagues the athletes compete for in teams - for the youngsters this is Ebbisham and Lily B (boys and girls respectively from age 9) and the slightly high level Youth Development League (YDL) from Yr 6 at school upwards).
Here is a link to a flyer for the YDL lower age group (Yr 6 - Yr 9 at school) created by Richard White one of the team managers of this league.

Kestrel Club goals and costs.
The aim of the sessions is very simple - to introduce the whole range of athletics events to children in a fun and fulfilling way through coaching from highly experienced qualified coaches.
All children are welcome, no matter what their ability and potential, as we believe that everyone can improve with our support. Each session is run at the Kingsmeadow Stadium in Kingston (postcode KT1 3PB), and the club runs throughout the year - including the summer holidays.
We currently run the Kestrel Club at the following times:
Tuesdays from 17.00 to 18.15 - for school years 4-11
Wednesdays from 17.00 to 18.15 - for school years 4-11
NOTE: This session is at the Epsom Track (Poole Road)
Wednesdays from 19.30 to 20.45 - for school years 8-11
Sundays from 9.30 - 10.45 - for school years 2-5
Sundays from 11.00 - 12.15 - for school years 6-11
In addition to this, we have a session with a slightly different format:
Thursdays from 17.00 to 18.15 - for years 6 and above. Here athletes can concentrate on individual event groups (sprints, middle distances or throws) if they really enjoy one area significantly more than the others.
If you would like to come and try out to see if you like the sessions, we offer athletes a taster sessions. The first one is £5, with any further pay-as-you-go session £15 thereafter.
If you would like to commit more long-term after trying us out, then the cost of the sessions is £95 for each 3 month period or £170 for each 6 month period, which will run on a rolling basis. This price pays for one of our sessions per week - there is a £20 discount on a second session, if your child would like to take part, provided they are in at least Year 6. This means the cost is £170 for 6 months for one session a week or £310 for two sessions a week.
The price includes the cost of admission to the track, all coaching, and prizes / goodies for athletes.
We are looking to develop each individual's talents as far as possible so that they can enjoy the great sport that many of us have been involved in for years.
This will provide a great platform for future athletic and sporting achievement for the youngsters involved and is the primary route into athletics for those wishing to join K&P.
If you have any queries about the club or would like to register an interest in joining, please e-mail
Alternatively, we are happy to welcome you for a trial without prior notice if your child meets the age requirements for the session.
The Kestrel Club presents an "Athlete of the day" award each sessions. There are good prizes to be had (hoodies, t-shirts, hats etc), and is based on dedication, good behaviour and good performance etc.
We also have a Facebook Page - KestrelClubKingston which we'd love you to join so you can keep up to date on all the news about all that is going on.
