    Athletics training for 8-year old

    Hi, we are new to HK, currently living in TST, Kowloon. I am looking for an athletics club (sprint, long jump etc.) for my 8-year old boy. Maybe also in a free activities program of a school. Grateful for any hints!

    Hi Martina,

    I think most athletics (sprint, cross country, etc.) are done in and through schools.

    The Hong Kong Amateur Athletics Assocaition has a junior squad for kids 12-19. maybe someone there could give some advice?

    Looks like the Watsons Athletic Club has some training for kids born in 2000 (8 year old) and older

    Have you asked your child's PE teacher?
