Half Term Athletics Camps


Half Term Athletics Camps                         

With half term approaching, as many of you know Lodge Sports have been running successful and fun athletics camps for the 5 Years if not a bit longer. So we now have the dates for this years Camps. They are Thursday May 31st May & Friday 1st June. Over the years that we have been running these camps as we all know the weather is for ever unpredictable and we have had some very wet half terms. So this year we have booked indoors at Brimsham Green School, right by YOSC, where we will be following a Octathlon format and even fitting in the odd game or two of Dodgeball (that we know all kids love) as recovery of coarse. The Octathlon covers the Run, Jump, Throw elements of athletics. We ran the last half term camp indoors and everyone that came really enjoyed it.

To ensure the the Camps run please book in early as we always have some late comers, this could mean the difference between the camps running or not. Booking forms need to be in by Thursday 24th May.

If you click on the link below this will give you a booking form that you can download and print.

Some Great News

This is great news for the adults. As you may know that a few weeks ago someone decided to make it difficult for lodge Sports to allow adults to run on the track with the juniors. Well we have been Talking to / in negotiation with, the New Manager of YOSC and we have come to an arrangement. The adults can get back on the track on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays only, at the same time as the juniors. This is great news all round…………..So as of Tuesday 24th April adults are back on the track.

As a little bit of additional information you may or may not be aware, as of the 9th July the track at YOSC closes for refurbishment and re opens on the 1st October, should be a fantastic new track and additional facilities. We are in the process of looking at options for the Lodge Sports sessions and will keep you up to date.



Circuits – S & C


Circuits – Strength & Conditioning


What you do off the track, is as important as, what you do on the track !


Some fantastic news, we at Lodge Sports recognise how important it is to develop a level of strength to progress in your chosen event or sport or just to keep fit. We have put in place 2 weekly sessions in Yate that will be a great foundation for building strength within all athletes.

We are also pleased to announce that, parents are also welcome should they wish to improve the strength through circuit sessions.


For more information check out our ” Circuit – S & C “ page on our website.
