About the Junior Section

Garscube is a club mark accredited club and prides itself on the quality of coaching it provides to our junior athletes. We cater for young athletes from 9 years to 17 years. The club offers a fun range of events and the sessions are tailored to specific events from track and field to road running and cross country.  Our aim when young members join the club is to allow young athletes to experience the range of athletic events, hopefully leading to them specialising in one area. During this process they will be educated about the different areas involved in getting the best out of a training session.

Training: Our main training session is on a Tuesday from 18:15 – 19:15  at Garscube Sports Complex, West of Scotland Science Park, Maryhill Road, Glasgow. We also have an extra running session on a Thursday from 19:00 – 20:00.  There are some training sessions on other days in line with seasonal events.  You can read more about junior training here.

Membership: Our membership fees can be found on this page We currently have a waiting list in operation.

Competition and Progression:  We will encourage all our young athletes to enter races over both the winter and summer schedules taking in both Track and Cross Country events leading up to National Competitions.  All of our Junior athletes train in packs of similar abilities and the aim is to allow them to progress through the packs and eventually to integrate into the senior training sessions. Their progression will depend on their commitment /dedication to training.

Helping out in Garscube: Garscube Harriers requires volunteers to assist with current coaching, club support and competition. We are always in need of adult helpers to assist our coaches particularly in the younger training groups. There are also lots of other areas that we need your help with, for example team managers, registration sign in, race marshalling, etc.   If you are interested, please email Junior Head Coach, John Bell (garscubejuniorcoach@gmail.com), to find out how you can help out.
