Our Godiva Kids club is currently operating at full capacity and also has a long waiting list.

If your child is aged between 8 and 12 years and is interested in joining Godiva Kids then please contact us on kids@coventry-godiva-harriers.co.uk. Please note that we are unable to add a child to the waiting list until they have reached their 8th birthday.

To Parents

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, Sally Eldridge, Gordon Horne,
Lianja Kaziow, Roger Medwell, Daniel Rowntree, Nikita Matu

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).

For youngsters age 12 to 17 who are interested in Middle Distance/Endurance, please contact; godiva.endurance@yahoo.co.uk

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.
