The Minor Harriers is our youngest section and caters for athletes in the 7-10 age group. The aim is to give youngsters an introduction to athletics, whilst helping them to master the basic skills. We encourage them to participate in our Minors Open Meetings, which are held up to three times a year. Details of these are at the bottom of the page. Any other queries regarding the minor’s section, please email Carl Reid email@example.com
The session starts at 10.30am every Sunday - PLEASE ENSURE YOU ARRIVE BY 10.15AM, ready for the session to start promptly at 10.30am and allow time to register. Every athlete must register and have proof of Watford Harriers membership, the club reserve the right to decline anyone from training without proof of membership.
Due to the Covid Pandemic the club is unfortunately no longer able to handle cash and offer a “pay as you go” option, therefore an online payment system for Minors session is in place. The exception to this is payment for the Minors Open Meetings where cash is accepted.
A registration form must be completed when you start, and you need to sign-in with a member of the Harriers committee each week. You will receive 3 free trial sessions, after which we ask you to sign up to become a member of Harriers and pay annually or 3months up front and then monthly. This payment covers your Watford Harriers membership and Track fees.
Any queries regarding memberships please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We offer a pathway for minors through to junior athletics at the club, this info can be downloaded from our Junior Section page.
