Stay at home - part 3...

We're afraid the track is now shut again.  We are looking at ways in which we can help athletes over the coming weeks.  Please get in touch if you'd like some assistance or have ideas on what would help.

We are currently working on a range of things you can do to keep active, fit and enjoying your athletics at this difficult time.  More in a few days - but for now, why not check out the videos section here on this website to get started.

As a team we are heartbroken by this - but if we all pull together we'll get through it and it will be a bit warmer for training when we return!  

We are very hopeful that with the vaccine things will seem a lot more normal in the not too distant future.

From all your Kestrel coaches.


Here is a short video about how we have been keeping young athletes safe during our time back after the first lockdown and will do so again once the track is open after the second one

Our sessions are now at the times below, which are a little different to how they were in the past.  Unfortunately, the Epsom track isn't yet available to us for Wednesday sessions yet.

Everything else, however, is pretty much as it was, with slight variations in times.

The times are 

Tues 4.40 - 6.00 (Yr 4 - 13 including High Flyers)

Tues 6.10 - 7.30 (High Flyers only)

Thurs 4.40 - 6.00 (Yr 4 - 13 including High Flyers)

Thurs 6.10 - 7.30 (High Flyers only)

Sun 9.00 - 10.20 (Yr2 - 7)

Sun 10.40 - 12.00 (Yr 6 - 13 including HIgh Flyers)

You do need to book sessions in advance now, as covid rules state we need to know how many athletes are attending sessions - and we have a maximum limit too, although we can generally cater for all the numbers we had previously in these age groups).

These are likely to change in the coming weeks, although we'll make sure we post any changes here, so you are fully aware of them.

Please contact us (kestrelclub@momentumsports.co.uk) for all the latest information or to book onto a session.

We are following all the covid-19 measures recommended by England Athletics and under government rules to ensure we are as safe as possible.  One way systems to the toilets, hand sanitiser, appropriate groups sizes, zoning of the track and cleaning of equipment are all very important to us - to keep everyone as safe as is humanly possible at this time, whilst still enjoying the sport we all love.

To get a brief idea of what is on offer, just watch this short video.

Again, any queries, please just ask.

We are really missing everyone, with it being about 10 weeks since we last saw you.  We hope that the above can help.  In addition, we have our challenges for you to try as well.

There's no excuse not to be keeping active!

Our daily ones are on this fun playlist on our Momentum Sports YouTube Channel.

We also have the Kestrel Kinetics 400 Challenge. We are still very keen for people to have a go at this (in fact, to have a 2nd, 3rd or 4th go - as it is a great, fun way to keep fit).

We offered a prize to the best video of an athlete doing this by the end of April.  The winner is Grace and you can see her video on our Facebook page. Well done to her.
