Kestrel Club aims, training times and prices
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.
Kestrel Club Referrals
We are pleased to introduce the Kestrel Club referral scheme whereby every athlete who introduces a new athlete to us, who then goes on to subscribe for a period of at least 3 months will get a "I passed it on" t-shirt.
Please let Pat or Vanessa know if you think you should have a t-shirt for introducing a friend to our great sport.
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 are
3 months once a week = £110
6 months once a week or 3 months twice a week = £180
12 months once a week or 6 months twice a week = £295
12 months twice a week = £495
The price includes the cost of admission to the track, all coaching, and prizes / goodies for athletes.
After an initial period with Kestrels (at the prices above), there is the option to switch to a monthly standing order if you'd rather. This is £32 for one session a week or £58 for two sessions a week.
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.

Alternatively, we are happy to welcome you for a trial without prior notice if your child meets the age requirements for the session.
