Training Days 2020 for all age groups years 6 - 13 - term time only unless otherwise stated:

10 November 2020 Covid-19 Update - apologies for the lack of regular updates. We are pleased to report that work on the track at Millfield has been completed and the flood lights are now operational. Just prior to the latest lock down Millfield were considering allowing us back on the track. However, all grass roots sports are banned until at least 3 December 2020. See England Athletics guidance here>>

Accordingly, the track is closed to outside users and our return will be considered again after 3 December assuming nothing else changes. In reality we think it’s likely that we could be looking at a return in the New Year, assuming no further restrictions. Watch this space for further updates.

URGENT: As of Tuesday 17th March 2020, all ACE training sessions are suspended until at least the end of April due to the Coronavirus epidemic. We very much regret this decision but for the safety of all concerned we must comply with Government and England Athletics guidelines. Take care, stay safe, look after your family. Best wishes from Peter & Graham.


Spring, Summer and Autumn training sessions take place on Wednesdays at the athletics track at Millfield School, Street, Somerset from the end of February until the end of October.

UPDATE - March 2020. The athletics track at Millfield is being upgraded and is out of use until after Easter. Accordingly ACE will be training at Brookside Academy  in Street (details below). We hope to return to the track some time in April 2020.

Access is via the  main pedestrian gate to the school. Access to the car park is through the adjacent double gates. The hall can be found by walking down the path between the school and the access road to the rear of the school. Look for the double doors on the RHS, enter and the hall is on the left.

If your athlete has an exercise mat/yoga mat could you please ensure they bring that with them. If your athlete is also able to bring an indoor set of trainers and an outdoor set this will allow us to use the outside facilities without having to worry about bringing dirty/wet trainers into the hall. If your athlete doesn't have two sets of trainers then please can you ensure that trainers are clean on arrival so that we don't bring dirt into the school.

As we will be training outside from time to time, it's important that your athlete is suitably dressed for both inside and outside training.

Spikes will not be needed.

Athletes should bring a drink and snack.

Time: 5.50pm - 7.50pm. Please arrive at about 5.50pm for registration.
