Sportshall athletics

Sportshall Athletics is suitable for younger children with the emphasis on fun, enjoyment, participation and giving one's best for the good of the team. Colourful, safe equipment specially designed for children is used and almost all athletic activities are catered for. All round ability is encouraged and specialisation is avoided. There are award schemes which allow an effective first step into the world of traditional track and field athletics. For more information on sportshall athletics visit their website on

Ilkley Sportshall Athletics was set up by Neil Chapman and Shirley Wood in September 2002. We currently run two general sessions of SHA for Years 3-7 for just over 100 children. All children do a decathlon award scheme and medals and certificates are presented at the final session of the spring term when parents are invited along to our presentation evenings. Every child is capable of achieving a level, but to gain gold they must be an all round talented athlete.
