What is Starting Blocs?

“Starting Blocs is a fun, exciting program to introduce children to the sport of athletics.”

Children will learn the key movement skills needed for a life in sport, in a safe and positive environment, through games that are designed to teach children the foundations of running, jumping, and throwing.

Our Ethos, Values, and Vision


All Starting Blocs’ sessions must have fun at the heart of them, enjoyment is key to a child’s success!


All Starting Blocs’ sessions must be delivered in a fair manner, with a clearly established code of conduct adhered to by everyone involved.


A child centred approach is an essential coaching philosphy to have when delivering Starting Blocs. This allows children to succeed at their own rate and develop in an appropriate way for them.
