The Aspiring Athlete Camp is back this summer with a programme of Athletics focused towards the 12-15 year old athlete. The camp will be led by the Head of Athletics at Millfield School alongside the Millfield athletics coaches. The camp provides a great opportunity to develop technical skills, try different events and learn ways to develop practical and workshop based activities.

Join your friends or enjoy making new friendships through our residential or day options.

This year's camp provides a Track & Field option and an Endurance option. Both elements of the camp will be complimented by general conditioning, mobility and skill development, as well as workshop-based sessions around planning training, competition, and nutrition for young athletes.

Track & Field

Try a variety of different disciplines including sprints, hurdles, high jump, long jump, javelin, discus and shot put. During the technical sessions, athletes will be able to choose which events they take part in.


The endurance programme aims to support young athletes with an interest in track and cross-country running. Facilities at Millfield offer a range of running surfaces and the opportunity to do a variety of endurance focussed sessions both on and off the track. Athletes will have the opportunity to learn through experience by trying a variety of sessions for different events both on and off the track, including an introduction to steeplechase.

The Athletics Arena has an all-weather 400m synthetic track (polyurethane surface) with six lanes, a 100m sprint track and hurdles. The track interior contains steeplechase, high jump, long jump, pole vault, javelin, shot put, discus and hammer.

During the Summer of 2020, Millfield’s Athletics Track benefited from significant investment in a state-of-the-art refurbishment. The upgraded track now includes a new world-class eight-lane sprint straight, a six-lane 400m track, an updated long jump pit and a state-of-the-art pole vault area with a double entry mat.
