Welcome to New Forest Juniors

New Forest Junior (NFJ) Athletics club is a small, friendly, club catering for all abilities. Our aim is to provide quality coaching and competition to young athletes from school year 4 to year 11, developing athletes to the best of their abilities. We are based at Noadswood School in Dibden Purlieu, in the East of the New Forest, with a small satellite club in the North of the New Forest, based around Hale.

NFJ offer athletes the opportunity of competing in cross-country competitions during the winter months followed by track and field league fixtures during the summer months. We support and develop those athletes wanting to progress to the next level. We also support local schools in their athletic aspirations throughout the school year.

If you would like to come along for a taster session, please contact Rachel Jones (will.merrett@btopenworld.com) to arrange the next suitable time. In your email, can you please give your child's Name, School Year and which training venue is most suitable for you (Noadswood or Hale). The training times for Noadswood and Hale are shown below.
