Welcome to the Godiva Kids Section
"We're having fun !"
Due to huge unprecedented demand, Godiva Kids membership is currently closed. As we also have a long waiting list we have, unfortunately, been forced to temporarily close the waiting list.
The children we can take is limited by the number of qualified coaches available. We are actively recruiting and training more coaches but would still welcome any qualified coaches who would like to join us.
Unfortunately, we remain constrained by the size of the facilities that we use for winter training where the number of children we can take is restricted by the space available.
We will update our website when the waiting list reopens.
Meanwhile, read on about Godiva Kids ...

"Jumping for fun !"
We want your child to enjoy athletics, whatever their abilities. All we want is for your child to achieve their Personal Best (PB), and ALL children are welcome whatever their ability or previous athletic experience. All coaches are fully qualified, and have been CRB checked in accordance with both Club and UK Athletics requirements. Those specifically dealing with Godiva Kids are as follows:
Nick Bennett, Frank Carter, Naomi Edwards, Sally Eldridge,
Gordon Horne, Lianja Kaziow, Roger Medwell, Daniel Rowntree
By the time your child has reached the age of 12 we shall have identified what they enjoy best, and they can then join an event-specific training group where they will be coached in their chosen event(s).
We want to give your child a head start in athletics, but most of all we want them to enjoy being an athlete and to be proud of being a GODIVA Kid.
