Young athletes can start to compete for the club from school year 6 so the club will accept young athletes into training groups from the age of 10.
Colchester Harriers believe that all young athletes should receive coaching from qualified and registered coaches. To ensure that all young athletes can be placed with a coach the club employs a waiting list system.
