East Cheshire Harriers & Tameside AC have qualified and dedicated coaches, both male and female, who are responsible for athletes ranging from 8 year old juniors to senior athletes.

Coaching is mainly provided on main club evenings (Tuesdays and Thursdays) from 7pm-8pm, 6pm – 7pm for under 11′s but training is not restricted to those nights. Some groups get together at weekends or during the week. Training for most field events (Jumping & Throwing) are on Monday and Wednesdays from 6pm onwards. Speak to Eddie Shaw (number is on the right hand side of this page) before attending.

Junior members are offered a wide-ranging introduction to athletics and specialised coaching is provided for most track & field events. However, joining ECH does not mean you are obliged to train under a coach.   While many members feel they benefit from regular coaching, there are many others who just want to join a group. As always, the choice is yours.
