U12 Block Starts Training

Starting blocks are a device used in the sport of track and field by sprint athletes to hold their feet at the start of a race so they do not slip as they push out at the sound of the gun.

Under 12 athletes can use blocks and spikes for sprint starts.

The centre provides introductory training for under 12 athletes and older athletes who wish to revise and refresh their skills.

Training is open to athletes registered with Knox Little Athletics Centre for the 2017-18 season.

Training sessions:

  • Sunday, 10 September 8:30-9:30
  • Sunday, 17 September 8:30-9:30
  • Sunday, 24 September 8:30-9:30
  • Sunday, 1 October 8:30-9:30

Tip: Print the blocks flyer and stick it on the fridge!

Please arrive a few minutes early and meet at the grandstand.

Important! Before buying spikes please refer to the spikes flyer, for advice on shoe selection.
